Happy Easter everyone! I have a brand new recipe for you! Not only is this Strawberry Cake an Easter treat, but it can be used for any occasion! This sweet treat will leave you jumping for more.
2 cups of white sugar
1 three ounce packet of strawberry flavored Jell-O
1 cup of butter, softened
2 3/4 cups of sifted cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup of whole milk (room temp)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 a cup of strawberry puree from frozen sweetened strawberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and dry strawberry gelatin mix, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. Blend in vanilla and strawberry puree. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans.
Bake for 25-30 minutes in oven, or until a small knife inserted to the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool in their pans over a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before tapping out to cool completely.
This recipe is so easy, and scrum-diddly-umptious! I hope you can enjoy this treat with close family, or friends! I hope you have an egg-cellent Easter!
