Watch Us Make: Mamaw Emily's Strawberry CakeA cake so sweet, it's blushing.


Mamaw knows best!

That's what our reader, Jennifer Bruce, learned when creating this five-star strawberry cake. The recipe was born from family nostalgia. Jennifer explains, "My husband loved his Mamaw's strawberry cake. He thought no one could duplicate it."

To recreate the classic dessert, she took to the kitchen, whipping up a batter using fresh strawberries, white cake mix and a box of flavored JELL-O. The combination gives the cake its mega moist texture and vibrant pink hue. To top it off, she made a fresh buttercream frosting using—you guessed it—even more fresh strawberries. In the end she earned the highest praises from her spouse. She says, "It's just as scrumptious as he remembers."

We bet Mamaw would love it, too! What's not to love? The cake positively bursts with fruity flavor. It balances in the spot between refreshing and totally sweet-tooth-satisfying.
