I live in a household of all boys, so you won't find much pink around here. I make one exception, though, when it comes to my husband's favorite childhood dessert: Strawberry Cake. And its pretty color would make it perfect for Valentine's Day, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you!
This cake is super-easy to make and is absolutely delicious. Instead of frosting, it has a strawberry glaze that's ooey and gooey and yummy.
1 box white cake mix
2 Tablespoons flour
1 3 oz. box strawberry gelatin
1/2 cup water
1 cup oil
1/2 cup liquid drained from frozen strawberries
1 pound confectioners' sugar
2 T. melted butter
2 16-oz. containers frozen strawberries, drained and mashed (reserve 1/2 cup liquid)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all cake ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour into 13"x9" prepared pan. Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Prepare glaze while cake is baking by combining all glaze ingredients.
While cake is still hot, poke holes all over cake with toothpick, then pour glaze over cake.
Just right for Valentine's Day! Enjoy!
