Libby’s Recipes: Easy Strawberry Cake and Icing

This week’s recipe comes from my friend ( and fellow softball mom) Gina Lee and is one she found on the internet.  She’s made it and says it is really good.

Easy Strawberry Cake
1 box white cake mix
1 (three ounce) box strawberry gelatin
1 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 to 1 cup mashed strawberries, fresh or frozen

Combine cake mix and Jello, then beat in oil, eggs, water and strawberries.  Pour into two 9-inch greased and floured cake pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cake tests done with a toothpick.  Cool and frost.

Icing
1/2 cup butter or margarine
one (16 oz.) box confectioners sugar
1/4 cup (or more) mashed strawberries

Have a great week- hope you enjoyed the rain as much as we did.  And Happy Trails!
