Traditional Strawberry Cake

Ingredients

For the Cake
  • Eggs, 4
  • Water, ¼ cup
  • White cake mix, 1 package
  • Strawberry-flavored gelatin powder, 3 ounces
  • Vegetable oil, 1 cup
  • Strawberries (mashed), ¾ cup
For the Icing
  • Strawberries (mashed), ¼ cup
  • Butter, ½ cup
  • Confectioner's sugar, 1 pound
Method
  • Take a large bowl and mix the cake mix and the gelatin powder in it. Slowly fold in the vegetable oil. Lightly beat the eggs, and fold them into the mixture. Add in the water and the strawberries.
  • Take the cake pans and grease them with flour. Pour the mixture into these pans.
  • Bake in an oven at 350 °F for about 30 minutes.
  • To test and see if the cake has baked properly, take a butter knife and insert it into the cake till the bottom and pull it out. If it comes out clean, the cake has baked properly.
  • Cut the cake horizontally into 2 slices. Cool both the slices before serving.
  • To make the icing, beat the butter and the confectioner's sugar till the mixture turns smooth. Add the strawberries and mix thoroughly.
Garnishing

Place one slice of the cake on a plate. Spread a layer of the icing and then place the other slice on top of this. Spread the remaining icing over the top and the sides of the cake. You can add slices of fresh strawberry and freeze the cake for some time before serving.
