who say’s things have to look cute to taste good?

The best part of baking is making everything look cute – it’s creation in the form of food, except then it gets devoured and eaten. Here’s an awesome (and delicious) cake made in the past that didn’t come out so good-looking, but made up for in taste!

Strawberry Cake (picture above) – okay so it’s kind of cute, in a deformed kind of way. This was made from scratch one Saturday night after the munchies hit my friends and I hard.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs (room temperature)
  • 2 3/4 cups sifted cake flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup strawberry puree made from frozen sweetened strawberries

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans. (I used squares)
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and dry strawberry gelatin until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. Blend in vanilla and strawberry puree. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a small knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool in their pans over a wire rack for at least 10 minutes, before tapping out to cool completely.

This recipe took me like two hours, but it tasted SO good. And it’s pink, so it’s always kind of cute.
