Pink and delicious! This is the easiest Gluten Free Strawberry Cake Recipe you will ever find and it turns out moist and perfect every time!
I can't say that I have done this often, but I just blew my own mind with this recipe. I have been trying to figure out a SIMPLE Gluten Free Strawberry Cake for YEARS! Then the other day it just came to me. One of those lightbulb moments. Call it divine intervention, or a small miracle from above. I just call this the easiest gluten-free Strawberry Cake and it is delicious!
Strawberry Cake Secret Ingredient
So my secret ingredient. Strawberry Jello! Not only does it give the cake a great strawberry flavor but it helps the cake stay incredibly moist and keeps it from being crumbly like some gluten-free cakes can be. I used my Homemade Vanilla Cake Mix Recipe and just added a 3 oz box of strawberry jello. I then followed the regular instructions to mix up the cake. No additional liquid is needed.
I realize that when people go gluten-free they are often dairy-free or even egg-free. The cake mix recipe I linked to above is super easy to make dairy-free too! There are also several store-bought mixes that are dairy-free or offer dairy-free instructions.
I do not have a lot of experience making egg-free/gluten-free cakes although I know it is totally doable. This is one time when I am going to tip my hat to the experts and send you off to google the best egg-free cake mix for you.
Baking & Decorating
Bake as a cake or cupcakes. I chose cupcakes this time because who doesn't love a great cupcake?! They are even better with these cute cupcake liners and sprinkles from Sweets and Treats.
Frost with whatever kind of frosting you love, but I recommend this Simple Strawberry Buttercream Frosting! YUM! Pink on Pink on AMAZING!
