Recipe Series: Mema's Strawberry Cake

Recipe provided by Laurie Ann Truluck, Realtor and TEAM Leader

The recipe I am sharing is from my late mother-in-law, Rose....also known as Mema. She loved to cook and bake and she loved to feed her family -- this is what brought her the most joy. She had a famous Strawberry Cake that was made for all special occasions -- birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, family gatherings and more. One of my favorite things about it, is that it was just the right size to be my childrens' 1st Birthday cake -- you know the one -- the one that is placed in front of them for them to dig into with their fingers, whole hands, face, whatever! A delicious photo op! So without further ado, here is Mema's Strawerry Cake recipe!
Mema's Strawberry Cake
Cake Ingredients:
- 1 box of Duncan Hines Deluxe White Cake Mix
- 4 eggs 
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 cup crushed strawberries (see notes for frozen vs fresh)
- 1 cup oil
- 1 small box of Cherry Jello
- 3 T self rising flour
- 1 box (16 oz)10x powdered sugar
- 1/2 c crushed strawberries (drained)
- 1 stick butter
*Mema's tip:  If you use fresh strawberries, make sure to mash well and add sugar to desired sweetness.  Frozen strawberries work well for cake and icing.
Mix together cake mix, eggs, water, strawberries, oil, jello and flour. Pour into two 9 inch cake pans, a 9 x 13 pan or cupcake non stick pans -- use cooking spray.
Bake 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Insert toothpick until it comes out clean. Let cool before frosting.
Mix together powdered sugar, strawberries and butter. Add small amounts of juice to the powdered sugar to get the smooth consistency you like and spread onto cake/cupcakes.
