Some strawberry cake recipes are simply delicious strawberry cake from the Food Network and strawberries-and-cream sheet cake from Southern Living. Taste of Home provides a strawberry layer cake recipe using cake mix and strawberry gelatin.
Make simply delicious strawberry cake by flavoring 1 box of white cake mix with 1 3-ounce box of strawberry-flavored instant gelatin. Thaw and puree 1 15-ounce package of frozen strawberries in syrup. Mix the strawberry puree into the cake and gelatin mixture, then beat in 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and 1/4 cup of water. Pour the batter into 2 lightly greased round cake pans, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
While the cake bakes, cream together 1/4 cup of softened butter and 1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese. Thaw and puree 1 10-ounce package of frozen strawberries in syrup, and add 1/4 cup to the cream cheese mixture. Fold in 1/2 teaspoon of strawberry extract and 7 cups of confectioner's sugar. Spread the strawberry cream cheese frosting between the cake layers and on the top and sides of the cake. Top with sliced strawberries. Another strawberry cake recipe suggests frosting the cake either with whipped cream or store-bought frosting.
