Delicious Strawberry Cake Recipe

Several years ago while attending a family picnic, one of my sister-in-laws made this delicious strawberry cake...after tasting it...I had to get her recipe! Since that time...this cake has become a family favorite, especially during this time of the year when strawberries are in-season and plentiful here in Pennsylvania.

Here is my SIL's recipe for Strawberry Cake!

Strawberry Shortcut Cake Recipe

1 cup mini marshmallows
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 pkg. strawberry gelatin (jello)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs

Generously grease the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over the bottom of the pan. Thoroughly combine thawed strawberries and the dry strawberry gelatin mix together and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Blend at low speed with an electric mixture until ingredients are well moistened and combined, then beat at medium speed for an additional 3 minutes.

Pour the batter evenly over the marshmallows and then spoon the strawberry mixture on top.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and tests done. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or with some whipped topping (cream).
