Combine cake mix, flour, Jello and water. Add oil and eggs, one at a time, beating well between. Add strawberries. Beat 2 minutes. Pour batter into well greased and floured 9×13 pan. Bake at 350* for about 45 minutes.
Icing: Strawberry Cream Cheese frosting
(adapted from Paula Deen online recipe)
1 stick butter, softened
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 (10 oz) pkg. frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed & pureed
7 cups powdered sugar (I didn’t really measure, just dumped in a bunch, probably about 5 cups & mixed with the mixer – you can measure if you’d like. This made more than I needed and I couldn’t add it all to the top of the cake or it would run over, next time I’m making less).
Add freshly sliced strawberries with juice to the top for EXTRA flavor!
