Mama Seward’s Strawberry Cake

This is a very moist cake!  If I close my eyes while eating it, the aroma almost makes me feel as though I’m eating fresh strawberries.  There’s no better endorsement than that! _The Test Kitchen


  • CAKE
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box strawberry gelatin (small box)
  • 1 c oil
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c mashed sweetened strawberries (not drained)
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 lb box of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c mashed strawberries, drained


  1. CAKE: Mix all cake ingredients together and pour into a 9×11 inch pan. (You can layer in 2 smaller pans if you’d prefer.) Do not fill to the top of the pan, or batter will bake up too tall.
  2. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
  3. FROSTING: Mix together frosting ingredients. (It’s very important that strawberries are drained.) If too thick keep adding strawberries until it is the right consistency.
