I would like a scratch one but a doctored box one will do.

I'm going to give you my doctored recipe. Everyone loves this cake:

1 box white cake mix
3 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup buttermilk (you can use water if you don't have buttermilk)
1 pkg strawberry jello gelatin
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
1- 6 oz pkg of frozen strawberries, thawed (I use unsweetened)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 8 inch pans. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and
beat for 3 mins. Bake 30-40 mins, till pick inserted comes out clean.

Hope you like this recipe.----

My great aunt's reicpe. Everytime I take it somewhere, I come home with an empty cake plate.

1 white cake mix
1 box frozen strawberries (I use Bird's Eye)
1 small box strawberry jello
3 eggs

Mix everything including juice with strawberries. Bake at 350 until done.

1 box confectioners sugar
1 box frozen strawberries
1 stick melted butter

Mix everything including strawberry juice and ice cake. You will actually have to use a ladle because the icing is so thin.

The recipe as written produces a dense cake that will sink in the middle. I've found that if I use sugar free jello that it produces a lighter cake and does not sink.

This is my great-aunt's recipe and is beloved by the family. As far as I know, I'm the only one with the recipe.

I found this on I have made this before, but it's been a while. . .if I recall correctly, it stuck to the pan, so I would line with parchment. I also think that it didn't rise all that much?? Good Luck

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

2 C sugar
1 3oz pkg strawberry gelatin
1 C butter, softened
4 eggs, room temp
2 3/4 C sifted cake flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
1 C whole milk, room temp
1 Tbs vanilla
1/2 C strawberry puree made from frozen sweetened strawberries

350 deg F, 175 Celsius. Grease and flour 2 9" rounds.

Cream together butter, sugar, dry gelatin until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into batter alternately with the milk. Blend in vanilla and strawberry puree.

Pan out and bake 25-30 minutes or until tester is clean. Cool 10 min in pan and then completely on a wire rack.
