This is a recipe I came up with by reading all the posts here on strawberry cakes. Makes a great strawberry cake!

Easy Strawberry cake from a mix


  • 1 White Duncan Hines Cake mix (have not tried with the pudding mixes)
  • 1 1/3 cups Water
  • 2 Table Spoons Veg oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream (can use yogurt)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 package strawberry jello
  • 4 oz pureed frozen sliced strawberrys in syrup (drain most of the syrup it will cause the cake to sink if you do not)


    Mix the first 4 ingrdients until well blended. Add remaining ingredients. Mix until well combined. Place in greade pans. Bake 350 for recommended time for pans.

Is this a cake that you could stack and decorate or is it too heavy for that?

I stack it. I have not had any trouble with it.

I am looking forward to trying this recipe. What size pkg of jello do you use, Small or large?

Use the small package of Jello. The recipe makes enough for 2-9inch rounds. Do not use the recipe on the box. Just add as the recipe says.
