Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

This is a delicious and simple to make recipe that turns a plain yellow cake mix into a fresh strawberry dessert. This cake has to be the offspring of a marriage between a dump cake and a traditional upside down cake. The ingredients are not fancy, but the taste is top-notch. This is a recipe you'll want to keep handy for fresh strawberry season. My recipe source for this tasty cake is Allrecipes.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

2 cups crushed fresh strawberries
1 (6 ounce) package strawberry flavored Jello
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (18 ounce) package yellow cake mix, batter prepared as directed on package

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread crushed strawberries on the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Evenly sprinkle strawberries with the dry gelatin powder, then top with the marshmallows. Prepare the cake mix as directed on the package, then pour cake batter over the top of the marshmallows. Bake in preheated oven for 40 - 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then run a knife around the pan to loosen the sides. Turn the cake out onto a serving tray. Store cake in refrigerator.

  2. Looks delish and so easy and fast. I would think with all the variety of jello you could use any berry. Sounds like a keeper. Andi

  10. I made this and people loved it! I did use strawberry banana jello instead but you could not really taste the banana. Next time I plan on using orange jello. I spread whip cream on top too, it was a hit.
