• 1970s Vintage Strawberry Cake

    I had to laugh the first time my daughter served us  this strawberry cake. It was a new recipe, or so she thought until I explained that I started making this delicious, extremely moist cake before she was even born. I made it all the time for years, and then as I often do, I simply retired the recipe. One taste, however, and I remembered just why it was that this was my go to cake as it is for her today.

    STRAWBERRY CAKEMy dear 1970s friend, Betty Allen shared the following with me…in an exercise class! LOL

    It is impossible to believe that it starts with a mix.

    Ingredients and Preparation

    Pillsbury White Cake Mix
    3 Tablespoons Flour
    1/2 Cup Oil
    4 Eggs

    1. Mix well.

    1 Small Box Strawberry Jello
    1/2 Cup Warm Water
    1/2 (the larger little milk carton looking box) Sweetened Frozen Strawberries, thawed

    2. Dissolve jello in water and mix into cake mix.

    3. Stir in strawberries.

    Bake in buttered and floured pan according to cake mix directions.

    Icing Ingredients

    3/4 Stick Butter
    1 Box Powdered Sugar
    1/2 (the larger box) Sweetened Frozen Strawberries, thawed…or enough to make your icing the consistency that you want.
