Those kids are so lucky to have her in their presence every day!  Thanks, Jeanette, for sharing this recipe and another cake recipe for Coconut Cake.  I will be making that one soon too!  Oh, by the way…this Strawberry Cake was a big hit at our family Easter dinner!  And…it’s better after it’s been in the refrigerator for a few days.  Strawberry Cake | My Kitchen AddictionsThis recipe starts with a boxed white cake mix and a few add-ins makes it super easy to prepare!Strawberry Cake | My Kitchen AddictionsI was able to use some of those frozen strawberries from this past summer.  I was so glad I had them in the freezer,as I forgot to pick up this ingredient when I went to the store.Strawberry Cake | My Kitchen AddictionsIt’s a pretty batter!  Strawberry Cake | My Kitchen AddictionsThis Strawberry Cake is delicious and improves with age.  It reminds me of an icebox cake that my grandma used to make.

    Jeanette is a one of a kind friend and she is an awesome cook. (Just like you, Jackie St. Clair!) I will make this strawberry cake really soon–looks delicious!

    Jackie, our Mom, Mary Frances Snell made a slightly different version of this. No extra flour and used strawberry juice instead of the water. She poured the batter into three round cake pans (greased and floured) then baked. The icing between those layers added to the moistness and is still a family favorite!
