Strawberry Cake


Original recipe makes 1 - 3 layer 9 inch cake

 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored
 1/2 cup cold water
 1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
 4 eggs
 1 cup vegetable oil
 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
 1 (10 ounce) package frozen strawberries, thawed
 6 tablespoons butter
 2 cups confectioners' sugar


1-Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9 inch round cake pans.

2-In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in cold water; stir in the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, flour and 1/2 of the strawberries. Beat for 5 minutes on the medium speed of an electric mixer. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.

3-Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the layers spring back when lightly pressed in the center. Cool cakes in the pans on wire racks.

4-To Make Frosting: Cream the butter, sugar and the remaining half of the strawberries in a medium bowl until light and fluffy, adding additional confectioners' sugar if needed for a spreadable consistency. Spread the frosting between layers and over the top and sides of cake.
