Strawberry Cake

I've been meaning to write this post for a long time and realized yesterday that I never had. It comes from one of my favorite cookbooks - A Cookbook for My Southern Daughter by Patsy Smith. As I've said before, I've had this cookbook since Junior High School and could not even say how many of these wonderful recipes I have used! This is one of the first cakes that I started making. It is so easy! It's not difficult since it uses a cake mix but still tastes made-from-scratch since you add in fresh ingredients.

Grandmother's Strawberry Cake
1 pkg. white cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 pkg. frozen strawberries
1 small pkg. strawberry jello
1 cup vegetable oil

Combine all ingredients; beat. Cook in 9" layers. (I've also made a sheet cake before and it turns out so well!)

1/2 pkg. frozen strawberries
1 stick butter, melted
1 box powdered sugar
(I have actually never made this icing, but I'm sure it's wonderful. I always use this cream cheese icing.)
