"....a longing fulfilled is a tree of life."
I hate to leave you longing, but for undisclosed reasons I am going to do this recipe in two parts....
Okay some of the reasons are grading tests, doing laundry and making dinner, but I believe the anticipation will only increase your appetite!!!
Now, get ready for a taste sensation- this berry cake is so good, one will ever think it when they taste this, but it is something of a "cheater" cake.....I used a White cake mix....shhhhh- don't tell anyone!!!!!!
Here's what you'll need:
1 box of white cake mix (shhh- use this stealthily)
1 small pkg. strawberry gelatin
1 c. flour
3/4 t. salt
1 c. fresh or, here frozen fruit + enough water to make a full cup
1/3 c. water
2 T. oil
1 c. melted butter
1 t. vanilla
First whisk together all your dry ingredients like so-
Then blend your fruit/water mixture in your food processor, blender or Magic Bullet that your sweet sis-in-law got you....until it looks like a mini smoothie as above!
...but the whisk will do just fine!
Try to restrain yourself from eating ALL THE BATTER...and evenly distribute it into 2 9" pans...
|ignore the little bitty loaf pan- I used it as a taster because it was an experiment and we were having company - yes you can expect to be experimented on if you come to my house!!!!(it was successful , BTW!)|
bake these at 350 ° for 33-38 minutes- you want to be careful not to overbake these beauties just so they don't jiggle in the center, but they will continue to bake after you pull them so WATCH CLOSELY!
they should look like this!!!!
Tune in tomorrow for the next exciting episode when I will show you how to make the Cheesecake frosting!!!! You will not want to miss it!!!!!
See you then!
