Dear Lisa: What is the recipe for strawberry cake that uses strawberry jello? My grandmother used to make it with a powdered sugar icing. Can you give me the recipe? - Delores V.

Dear Delores: There are probably dozens of recipes for strawberry cake that include strawberry gelatin and an icing made with powdered sugar.

This one might not be your grandmother's exact version, but it is definitely a winner.

1 package white cake mix 3 tablespoons flour

3 eggs ¾ cup cooking oil ¾ cup water

1 (3 oz.) package strawberry gelatin

½ cup frozen or fresh sliced strawberries

Icing: 2 tablespoons butter 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons crushed strawberries

Additional strawberries for garnish, optional

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine cake mix, flour, eggs, oil, water, gelatin and ½ cup strawberries in large mixer bowl and mix well. Bake in greased and floured tube pan for 40 minutes, or two 9-inch cake pans for 25 minutes.

For icing, combine butter, powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons crushed strawberries. Drizzle over warm cake. Decorate with additional whole or sliced strawberries, if desired.
