Mom's Sunday Strawberry Cake

Ned Ashley


While growing up as a child, my most favorite dessert that my Mother would bake would be her world famous strawberry cake. For nearly all celebrations where a request was necessary, the unanimous choice would be for Mom's Sunday Strawberry Cake!

The recipe was handed down to my wife, Mandi, who continues to make the cake. The requests now pour in from her family for her to make this cake for them on many occasions. To this day, nothing marks a special occasion in our extended family like this cake, and I am happy to pass it along.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Place cake mix, oil, eggs and jello in large
mixer bowl and blend well with electric mixer. Add strawberries and pour
into 3 8-inch pans that have been greased and floured (I use a 9 x pan
stead. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

While cake cools mix up cream cheese, butter, strawberries and confectioners
sugar with electric mixer. Handle cake carefully while frosting it, as it
is very light and moist and crumbles easily.
