Ingredients

    1 white or yellow cake mix (Pillsbury does a reduced sugar variety), Light Cool Whip, 1 Cup Fresh Strawberries (or other fruit as desired) and 1 package of strawberry Jello (or other flavor as desired sugar free should help lower calorie count)

Mix the jello according to the directions and pour over the cake. Allow to gel. Use the Cool Whip as the frosting and top with sliced strawberries.

  • Incredible!

    This recipe is really good. Was a huge hit with the family. What I did to make it more lower in fat is I replaced the oil for applesauce and egg whites instead of whole egg in the cake mix. - 8/18/08

    Another variation is to put a layer of vanilla pudding between the cake and Cool Whip layer. That's how my grandmother always made this cake, and it is delicious. - 5/3/10

    To reduce calories even more, when making the cake just pour in one can of diet soda; mountain dew or 7-up, whatever you like as long as it is diet--DO NOT use oil or eggs, JUST DIET SODA! This makes a very moist and very good cake. I may have to make this for my birthday. I Love Strawberries! - 4/18/09

  • You can use sugar free gelatin and a sugar free cake mix - this will reduce your calorie count even more. - 6/25/08

  • Hey this sounds great but could you fix the recipe please? The calorie count only counted the strawberries, and you did not say how many strawberries and you also didn't say the size package of jello to use. This sounds delicious though! - 6/24/08

  • I HAVE MADE THIS FOR YEARS. IT IS A FAMILY FAVORITE. ANOTHER VARIATION IS TO MIX A BOX OF INSTANT VANILLA SUGAR FREE PUDDING (USING FAT FREE MILK) THEN STIR IN COOL WHIP. SPREAD ON TOP OF THE JELLO CAKE. TOP WITH SLICED STRAWBERRIES AND FRESH BLUEBERRIES. - 6/24/08
