The Easiest Gluten Free Strawberry Cake Recipe
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!

Thanks so much!!! My son always wants Strawberry Cake for his Birthday. I always watch while everyone else eats cake. So this year it’s a Gluten Free Strawberry Cake! Can’t wait to make. Thanks again.
YAY! Hope it turned out amazing!
Wow! Seriously delicious. I used Great Value mix and substituted buttermilk for regular milk.
Can’t wait to try this! My nephew is a strawberry cake fan, but his wife is gluten free. Would love to make a cake she can eat. Thank you!
I used this recipe with a gluten free cake mix. It turned out great and had great strawberry flavor. Next time I’ll use lemon jello or maybe lime or cherry.
