Strawberry Birthday!

Posted on May 19, 2012. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , |

I may be dating the most picky person alive. He doesn’t really want to do anything big for his birthday, so we’re going to a movie and…maybe dinner if he decides what he wants, but I insisted on making a cake. I wanted to bake damnit, and I have a day off, so why not? Matt doesn’t like very many sweets, but he does like strawberries, so I made a strawberry cake. Well, am currently making, it’s in the oven. Matt’s trying to get is birthday present working and he’s frustrated, but Moss is trying to help so…it’s going as well as can be expected. Anyway, strawberry cake, in the oven, so far, delicious, even though it uses boxed cake mix and strawberry jello mix.

Strawberry Cake
(From http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Strawberry-Cake?pmcode=IMEDV01T&_mid=2360337&_rid=2360337.558202.53758)

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites
1/2 cup mashed unsweetened strawberries
Whipped cream or frosting for your choice

  1. In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix, gelatin powder, water and oil. Beat on low speed for 1 minute or until moistened; beat on medium for 4 minutes. In a small bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites and mash strawberries into cake batter.
  2. Pour into three greased and floured 8-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Frost with whipped cream or frosting. If frosted with whipped cream, store in the refrigerator
