Homemade Strawberry Cake

A BIG hello all my wonderful readers! I'm blogging today from the lovely city of Clarksville, TN! We are up here visiting family from out of state, and I'm having a blast!

I just wanted to get a quick blog post in today before everyone got here. I will try to do a "city" photo post tonight as we venture out and view all the sights! Today, I'll be sharing the newest recipe in my collection with everyone ... Homemade Strawberry Cake! I'll admit, like most, I have always been a box cake mix person. Well, I think that is all about to change once I learn how do make different flavors and selections!!!

You can find the original recipe for the strawberry cake I made on Farm

 {Cake Ingredients}
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup sweetened strawberries, mashed
  • 1 small box dry strawberry jello

{Icing Ingredients}
  • ½ stick butter or margarine, softened
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup sweetened strawberries, mashed

To get this bad boy cake started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. You will need to mix together all the ingredients for the cake and pour into a 9" x 13" cake pan that has been greased to avoid sticking! Once your cake is ready to into the oven, bake it for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cake is completely done in the center. When I first inserted the toothpick into my cake, it was still runny in the dead center. The cake literally jiggled like Jell-O! So, I let it cook for an additional 10 minutes and it was fine!

While your cake is baking, go ahead and starting mixing your ingredients together for your icing. I recommend starting with a little and slowly working your way up to all the powdered sugar. If you need to add more powdered sugar or strawberries you can, just make sure the initial amount is smoothly mixed together before you add more. I didn't need to add anything extra. It was yummy as soon as it was smooth and creamy!!! The icing is also very rich and sweet so if you have a sweet tooth eater in the house, you might need to make 2 cakes!!

Once the cake has cooled, go ahead and spread the icing over the cake. My icing was easy to spread and covered the whole cake without any problems! It is best to put the cake in the fridge and let it chill for a few hours before serving. If you are like me and the crew at my house, it won't ever make it that long! The cake tastes totally different once it has completely chilled overnight! I love it!! I'm going to have to make another one soon, the first one is almost gone!

I hope you all enjoy this simple little recipe! This was my first homemade cake and it turned out great! I can't wait to try it with different Jell-O's and toppings!

Happy Baking Everyone!!!
