Jama's Gluten free Strawberry Cake
1 (18oz) box gluten free white cake mix
1 (3oz) box strawberry gelatin
1 (15oz) package frozen strawberries (thawed and pureed)
4 large eggs
½ cup canola oil
¼ cup water
¼ cup softened butter
1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
½ tsp strawberry extract
7 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Butter the bottom and sides of two round (9in) cake pans.
In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix and gelatin. Add all but ¼ cup of pureed strawberries, eggs, oil, and water; beat at medium speed with a mixer until smooth. Pour into prepared pans and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
While cake is baking, beat butter and cream cheese with an mixer until creamy. Add reserved strawberry puree and strawberry extract. Add powdered sugar a little at a time until consistency is how you like your frosting.
Let cake cool completely before frosting. If you’re feeling EXTRA sweet, cut a hole in the middle and fill the cake with m&m’s. Don’t tell anyone. Just let them cut into a delicious m&m avalanche. ;-)
