Strawberry Cake


When I reached out to my family member who was recently diagnosed celiac for a gluten-free dessert idea, she sent this adjusted recipe. I love it because it is that home-style cooking I missed through all those years of not participating completely in family meals and a great reminder that with all the new gluten-free flour and bake-mix options, you can make and enjoy almost any dish again.


1 box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mix

1 box (3-ounce) Raspberry Jell-O

½ cup strawberries chopped fine

½ cup water

4 eggs

¾ cup vegetable oil

3 tablespoons gluten-free flour

1) Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.

2) Pour into greased Bundt pan.

3) Bake 350°F for 40-45 minutes.

4) Allow to cool before icing.


½ stick butter, softened

1 8-ounce package of cream cheese

1½ cup powdered sugar

½ cup strawberries, chopped fine

1 tablespoon milk

1) Blend cream cheese, butter, and milk with hand mixer.

2) Slowly add powdered sugar, then fold in strawberries.

3) Ice the cake after it cools.
