Strawberry Sheet Cake


Sadly, strawberry season,
at least locally,  is over for me.
Last week when I went to the nearby farm stand for
the locally grown strawberries, they were closed.
No more locally grown strawberries until next year!




Luckily I still had about a half quart left at home
and used them to try out the following recipe for

Strawberry Sheet Cake


You will need 1/2 cup of mashed,
sweetened strawberries
Add a little sugar,
(I used 1/4 cup from the 2 cups called
for in the cake recipe.)


Mash them until they are well mixed and coarse.


Mix together:
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
1 cup milk
1/4 cup mashed, sweetened strawberries
1 small box dry strawberry jello


Pour into a greased 9x13-inch baking pan.



Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes
or until a toothpick comes out clean.


For the Icing, mix
1/2 stick softened butter
3 to 4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup mashed sweetened strawberries
You may need to add more powdered sugar or
strawberries for a spreading consistency.
Mix well first, before you add extra
sugar or strawberries.
Store in the refrigerator.


This is a great cake for pot luck dinners.

What a wonderful recipe! We're always lucky to get loads of the best strawberries from our farmer friends here in our California town--not quite ready yet...but as soon as we get some, I'll be making your yummy cake!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Was just getting strawberries yesterday at the farm I worked at while growing up - starting picking strawberries there when I was 12!

This looks so good! Our strawberry season is not quite here yet so I've printed out the recipe to add to our enjoyment of the season in a few weeks.

My new bag was a big hit on my trip. I filled it with the necessary things and popped it into my tote. I just pulled it out for walking about town and it was perfect. Thanks again!


Best,
Bonnie

You have made me hungry and I have to wait for a little while before I get off work. I am taking a few minutes while my printer is runnig. I love strawberries. Your cake sounds so good and looks so simple I also like strawberry pie, and strawberry cheesecake. I hope you are staying cool in your neighborhood. It is hot here. Must run. Your Missouri Friend.

Yippee, so excited
to find this! Our
strawberry season has
yet to begin, but once
it does and we come
home with the BIG haul,
it's time to get busy
since these local varieties
don't last like the
California types : )
This looks soooo good....
Thanks for sharing!
