There’s nothing quite like the taste of homemade strawberry cake recipe. I’m not a “big food” person; I find that eating too much of one thing can lead to obesity and poor health. But when I taste the sweet, gooey goodness of a freshly made strawberry chocolate cake, I don’t care what else I have for dessert! This homemade strawberry cake recipe has the best fresh, juicy strawberry flavor that gets enhanced by the simple application of sweet strawberry jello. This homemade cake is going to be a big hit at your next family reunion or just because at home.
First, you need to gather up all of the ingredients for your homemade strawberry cake recipe. These are strawberries, a pinch of salt, some food coloring if you prefer, sugar, cream of tartar, and then your prepared strawberry jello. You will also need about three to four cups of either water or milk, and then a half to one-fourth cup of powdered sugar. Of course, you can use fresh or frozen strawberries instead of the candy or sugar alternatives, but if you are buying strawberries that are not in season, make sure that you get fresh ones.
The first thing that you need to do with your homemade strawberry cake recipe is to boil the strawberries in water over about two to three hours. When the water boils, turn off the heat. Let the berries steep for about five minutes, then take them out of the water. Now, once they are cooled, you can put them in the fridge to cool and then use a food processor or a blender to purify them as much as possible.
Next, you need to combine your wet ingredients, which are the strawberries and the vanilla, into a mixing bowl, and then drop in the dry ingredients, which are the white cake mix. Mix until completely combined. Then, you will want to roll out the mixture so that it will cut easily. You should have about one tablespoon of dry pastry crust in the bottom of a mixing bowl. Next, you will want to line the bottom of the bowl with chocolate or other icing, so that you can pipe the strawberries onto the dough.
For the next layer cake, you will want to take two heaping teaspoons of the filling from the first layer cake and mix them together using a fork. Once you have mixed the ingredients, spoon them evenly into the pans, making sure to allow room for the air to circulate. You can place the cakes in the oven at the same time, or you can let them cool slightly before you transfer them to the cooling racks. When you are ready to serve, make sure to remove any toppings or frosting so that your strawberries have an even coating on all sides.

To make the cakes easier to frost, you will want to add a small bit of water to the room temperature cake mix, mixing thoroughly before you spoon the batter into the pans. Once the cake is done mixing, you will then add a small bit of the filling from the second layer cake into the batter, and mix thoroughly before you spoon this too into the pans. Once the cakes are finished mixing, you will want to add a small bit of the dry icing to the mix, and spread it very thick over the entire cake. Once you have finished decorating the cake, you can add the fresh strawberries to the top.
With fresh strawberries, you can use a food colorant to bring out the strawberry flavor. For this recipe, you can choose the favorite color of your child’s favorite strawberry shortcake. The food coloring is not necessary if you do not like the strawberry flavor. A food colorant works well in bringing out the color of the cake. A common flavorant used in strawberry cakes is salt. You can add a pinch of the salt to your batter if you want to bring out the flavor.
This strawberry cake is delicious as an alternative to traditional cakes. The key to this cake is to keep the strawberry flavor in mind when making the cake. A good cake will not only taste great, but it will also be healthy. Cooking your own cake saves you money and adds flavor to any diet.
