Makeover Strawberry Cake Recipe

My family just loves this wonderful and easy cake that's as pretty as it is tasty! —Gail Long, Pelham, Alabama
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • ICING:
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2-1/3 cups confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. Line two 9-in. round baking pans with waxed paper. Coat pans with cooking spray and sprinkle with flour; set aside. In a large bowl, combine cake mix and gelatin. Add egg whites and oil; beat until well blended.
  • 2. In a small bowl, mash strawberries in their juice. Set aside 3 tablespoons for icing. Add water and remaining berries to the batter; mix well.
  • 3. Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 4. For icing, in a small bowl, combine butter and reserved strawberries. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Place one cake layer on a serving platter; top with half of the icing. Repeat layers. Yield: 16 servings.

"Very sweet and tasty! I used dairy free margarine in the icing and it would not set up. Next time i might try the butter-flavored Crisco and see how that does."

"Made this for Father's Day and got rave reviews! So moist and yummy. It's nice to have something other than chocolate and this totally hit the spot."

"Pretty, yummy and light. The cake has a very NATURAL strawberry flavor. I added some strawberry jam to make the frosting more spreadable, so could use a little more pureed strawberries in the frosting. This cake would be perfect for a girl's birthday party or Valentines Day. Definately a keeper."

"Great summer cake. Strawberry flavor is not overpowering. The berries are pureed so there are no chunks of berries in the cake. The taste reminded me of the Crunch Berries (cereal) I used to love when I was growing up!"
