This is one of my most favorite recipes but I do change it a little to make it quicker and simpler. The only thing I keep the same is the marshmallows strawberries and Jello. Skip all the rest of the ingredients and use a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix and prepare it like it says on the box for a 9x13 cake. Pour the prepared batter over the marshmallows then the strawberry mixture on top of the batter and bake like it says on the box. Test it with a toothpick taking care to avoid the marshmallows that rose to the top. Leave it in the pan and cut serving pieces from there.
We all love this recipe. Most of the time I make it exactly as written but the last time I decided to shortcut the shortcut cake and I used a box yellow cake mix. Blah! Didn't like it at all that way. So in my opinion it's WAY better to make it as written. YUM! Thanks.
I made some changes to this recipe. I used fresh berries not frozen. My other changes were in the interests of making it healthier. I used white whole wheat flour not all purpose. I used only one egg and 1/3 cup egg whites instead of three. I used fat free vanilla yogurt instead of shortening. Of course the milk was fat free and my the jello was the sugar free stuff. Barring tonight I had not had this dessert in over 25 years but even making it a healthier lighter version I still see why it was my favorite. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
My frozen strawberries were whole so I gave them a quick rinse (to knock the ice crystals off) & sliced them in the food processor. Then I sprinkled them w/ a little sugar & let them sit in the food processor until thawed. I took Jane's suggestion to make it easier & used a white boxed cake mix. After baking the strawberries were at the bottom of the cake (w/ quite a bit of juice which may put off some people but we liked it) & the marshmallows had risen to the top & melted creating a marshmallowy crust. Yummm! I drizzed a pool of strawberry puree (the kind you use in mixed drinks) onto a plate added the cake & topped it w/ a dollop of whipped cream & a fanned-out strawberry. Thanks for the recipe Maureen!
I had lots of strawberries left over and tried this using the cake mix hint from the previous review (Thanks!!!). My only difference was that I did not have frozen strawberry so I mixed one box of jello with 1/2 c boiling water and 1/2 c cold water-then added that to sliced strawberries. Prepared and baked as directed then topped with cool whip. I cannot tell you how much a hit this was!! Adults and kids alike all enjoyed this--tasted better than any strawberry shortcake!!
Personally I didn't like this cake and my daughter didn't either. I made it for my boss birthday hope I don't get fired. I'll find out if she liked it but she'll probably lie and say yes. I added everything just like the recipe says and it didn't work. That or I'm just not a strawberry fan.
