my grandmother has made this for as long as I can remember. the only difference is she mixes a little vanilla pudding in with the whipped topping delicious!
This cake is great! I made it with my daughter for our family and shared some with my parents. They loved it and I made another one the next weekend for them.
I don't know what I did wrong. I followed the recipe as was shown, but it turned out too mushy. I will try this again, except, I will use a smaller pan, use fresh strawberries instead of frozen and maybe not so much water to the jello. If this turns out good, it's a keeper. If not, the cake will head to the landfill and the recipe deleted from my recipe box.
This cake is delicious...made for work and everyone raved about it! They couldn't believe how low in calories it was!
My son said it was the best cake I had ever made. I didnt have applesauce on hand so I just made the regular cake mix from the box instructions and used frest strawberries sliced with sugar (didnt read the recipe close enough until I had already had it ready to pour on the cake) and it was super easy and very good. A keeper.
