As a general rule I do not like fruity desserts. If I am going to consume an entire days worth of calories in one plate it must include chocolate, caramel, brownies, ice cream, nuts, or Oreos. Seriously. Fruit is not a dessert.
Or so I thought.
A friend of mine had me over for dinner recently and she had fixed this amazing strawberry cake. It was melted in your mouth, think about it the next day, awesome! So I asked her for the recipe…..lucky for you (not for my waistline! )
Here is what you need:
1 box of white cake
1 small box of strawberry flavored jello
3 TBS flour
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 1/3 cup fresh strawberries, sliced and divided
3 TBS sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
2 cups powdered sugar
This can be tricky. It all depends on how much juice your strawberries make. If they are extra juicy it can make your icing too runny. If that happens you can always add a little powdered sugar until you get a good consistency.
