Cooking time 50mins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 9 inch round pans.
In a large bowl, stir cake mix, gelatin and flour. Make a well in the center and pour in water, oil and eggs. Stir in half of the container of strawberries. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 min. on medium. Pour batter into prepared pans.
