Vanilla Strawberry Jello Cake
- 2 cups all-purpose flour sifted
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 lb. fresh strawberries- hulled and sliced in half
- 1 6 oz. package strawberry jello
- 2 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and flour two 8 inch x 2 inch baking pans and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add butter, milk, and vanilla. With a hand mixer, beat for 2 minutes, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl.
Add eggs and beat for 2 minutes more.
Pour batter into prepared pans, dividing equally between the pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven.
Cool in the pans for 10 minutes and then turn cakes out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
After cooled place cakes on top of each other. Then make jello topping.
Prepare Jello with 2 cups boiling water and set aside to cool to room temperature.
Wash, hull and halve the strawberries lengthwise. Add the strawberries and mix well.
Refrigerate until jello is mostly set and spread across the cakes.
Refrigerate until jello is firmly set and serve cold.
