Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and gelatin mix. Make a well in the center and pour in water, oil, and eggs. Stir in half of the container of strawberries. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 minutes on medium speed.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  4. To make the Strawberry Frosting: In a large bowl combine margarine, confectioners' sugar and the remaining half of the frozen strawberries. Beat on high speed until creamy. Add milk a tablespoon at a time until desired spreading consistency is achieved. Spread on cooled cake.

This was great! My grandma had this same recipe, but a couple of things were different, and I think it would help with some of the things that others complained about. First, use 1/3 cup milk instead of 2/3 cup water in the batter. Second, use 1/2 cup strawberries (undrained) for the cake. For the icing, my grandma's recipe called for 1/2 cup margarine, 1 - 1 1b. box of powdered sugar, and 1/2 cup of strawberries, DRAINED. That makes a TON of icing, so I halved it, and it was the PERFECT amount: 1/4 cup margarine, 2 cups powdered sugar (which is 1/2 a box), and I still use 1/2 cup of strawberries, DRAINED. Excellent cake!! Thanks for the recipe - now I have it online!

I took a reviewer's advice and used the 1/3 cup milk instead of the water. I'm glad I did. I was afraid the edges would burn before the center was done, but the cake turned out spectacular. I added 1 1/2 Tablespoons of lemon juice because the batter tasted way too sweet. I mashed the strawberries, then added them to the cake batter. I'm not sure if this is the proper way to prepare the cake, but it turned out fine. I used a 6oz package of gelatin; half for the cake, the rest I put in my cream cheese frosting recipe made with less sugar and a tablespoon of strawberry all-fruit preserves. If you take this suggestion, make sure to adjust the sugar in your frosting for the sugar in the strawberry gelatin. I didn't use the frosting suggested because I thought it sounded way too sweet and bland. I cut each cake layer in half to get more frosting in the cake because the cream cheese frosting with strawberry flavor is excellent. My family loved it.

The cake was fantastic, but the icing wasn't - too sweet for me. I made the cake again, this time taking the vanilla cool-whip and mixing that with some of the strawberries in syrup (about five oz of the strawberries). I decorated the top of the cake with whole strawberries cut in half placed all over the cake. This time the cake was PERFECT! LOL. Had a lot of great comments on the cake the second time.
