Tasty Tuesday- Strawberry Cake & Recipe Link up Party

Hi friends and welcome to another Tasty Tuesday!  Thanks so much for stopping by.


If you've been a reader for a while you probably know how much I love strawberry anything (anyone remember the time I tried to become a self-proclaimed jamstress and fell in love with homemade strawberry jam?  I had dreams of that delicious jam in the middle of winter)  So it's no surprise that today I'm bringing you a favorite cake of mine and that it's strawberry.  This is a super delicious and super simple cake to put together, but nobody else will be able to tell that one.  Here's what you'll need...


-1 box white cake mix
-1 (3 oz.) box of strawberry Jello
-4 eggs
-1/2 cup water
-1/2 cup oil
-1/2 cup pureed strawberries

Start by preheating the oven to 325 and greasing and flouring 2 8 inch round cake pans.  Next puree the strawberries

In a large bowl mix together the cake mix and Jello.  Then add water and oil. (A hand mixer would definitely make this job a lot easier, I just didn't want to get more of a mess going.  Plus sprinkled spatulas make everything better, right?)

Add the eggs one a time, mixing well after each one.  Then add 1/2 cup of the pureed strawberries, mixing that together as well.  

Pour into the prepared pans and bake for 25-30 minutes

I made a strawberry cream cheese frosting for this particular cake, but I love getting creative with this one.  Think chocolate ganache on strawberry cake?  Yes please.

  11. I started following your blog on Google Reader and didn't know until this morning that you hosted link parties. It looked like fun... but I have a confession: I wanted a new post to share.
    So I baked a recipe I've made a million times but was still tweaking a bit and then took photos so I could post. This time I am super happy with how it turned out.
    I've never made a new post for a link party before, but I was bored of sharing my smoothie. That was so... last week.
    Anyway, thanks for hosting and the inspiration to finish a recipe in progress.
