One of my all time favorite desserts is strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. It is perfect for practically any occasion, but I think it’s especially great for Valentine’s Day. If you are looking to whip up an extra special treat for your sweetheart, then look no further than this moist and delicious strawberry cake.
Today’s post is also a collaboration with Kelsey from The Old Farmhouse Blog. Be sure to go check out her delicious recipe and follow her blog as well. She is an incredible decorator, baker, and just all around precious person.
Strawberry Cake Recipe
Here’s what you’ll need:
- White Cake Mix (You can make your own mix or buy a boxed mix)
- 1 Small box Strawberry Jello
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 3/4 Cup Oil
- 3/4 Cup diced Strawberries/Drained (Reserve juice for Icing)
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix dry ingredients together and then combine with the rest of the ingredients. Mix together in stand mixer and separate into three 9 inch round cake pans. Bake for about 30-40 minutes at 350 or until cakes look done. Allow cakes to cool on rack until they are room temperature and then place in freezer until you are ready to ice them.
Here’s what you’ll need for the icing:
- 1 Box Powdered Sugar
- 1 Stick Butter, Room Temperature
- 4 oz. Cream Cheese, Softened
- Reserved Juice from Strawberries
Mix together and spread generously in between each layer and on top of cake. If you are a little extra, you may even want to double the icing recipe. When you are done icing the cake, garnish with strawberries.
