Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

Mix all of the cake ingredients together in a bowl; beat well until smooth (about 3 minutes).

Pour cake batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cake tests done.

Cool, and invert (turn over) cake onto a tray large enough to hold the cake.

To make the topping: Dissolve the jello powder completely in boiling water, with the sugar, then add in the COLD water; mix well.

Poke holes all over cake with a straw.

Drizzle the jello over entire top of cake. Place the strawberries slices evenly over and covering all the cake.

Refrigerate cake for 2 or more hours.

Just before serving, top cake with Cool Whip topping.
