I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pink Strawberry Cake

We're expecting snow and freezing rain today...ugh.
But strawberry season is just around the corner right?
And you'll want to try this super moist and super PINK strawberry cake!

1 double-layer white cake mix
1 - 4 serving size strawberry jello powder
3 tbsps sugar
3 tbsps flour
1 cup water 
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup finely chopped strawberries

Combine the cake mix, jello powder, sugar and flour in a large mixer bowl. On low speed add the water, vegetable oil and eggs. Increase speed and beat 2 minutes. Then fold in the chopped strawberries.

Isn't the pink awesome? 

Pour into 2 - 8" round pans. Grease and line the bottom with parchment, unless you have quick release pans like these then all you need is to grease them. They're old ones that my Mom had and still work great.

Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes then remove from pans and cool completely on rack. 

I love this strawberry cake, but unfortunately I won't share the icing recipe with you because that turned out horribly sweet. The first clue should have been that it called for 7 cups of icing sugar !?!  So use your favourite buttercream frosting recipe to top this yummy cake.
