Strawberry Cake

Serves 16 ( 8 points + )

  • 1 pkg. white cake mix
  • 1 pkg. ( .3 oz) sugar-free strawberry jello
  • 4 egg whites
  • ⅓ c. canola oil
  • 1 c. frozen strawberries, thawed
  • ½ c. water


  • ⅓ c. butter, softened
  • 2-⅓ c. powdered sugar
  • 3 T. strawberry juice ( from mashed berries)

Line two 9-inch round cake pans with wax paper. Spray with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, beat cake mix, jello, egg whites and canola oil. 
Mash strawberries and reserve 3 T. for icing.
Add remaining mashed strawberries and water and mix well. Pour into prepared cake pans and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

For icing, beat powdered sugar, butter and strawberry juice. Frost cake.

  1. Could you not substitute the oil with sugar free apple sauce to make this a little healthier or would it not matter?

    1. Yes, you could try it with the applesauce. Let me know how it turns out! Sometimes the oil is what gives a cake the nice consistency, though.

  3. I, for one, am drooling over here looking at your food pictures! :p

  4. I have no idea what Angela is saying but I think your pictures are fabulous and they are making my mother water so mission accomplished!!
    But I'd like to know if the points are calculated on the new pro-points system or the old points?

  5. My mother water would be funny lol but I meant my mouth :)

    1. Thank you. Yes, the points for most of the recipes are calculated for the new system. Eventually, I will finish updating from the old system :) If is says points +, then it is the new system.


I love hearing from people who visit my blog! Let me know that you stopped by and let me know if you try a recipe!
