This delicious Magic Strawberry Jell-O Cake is refreshing, soft with lots of flavor and texture. You won’t believe what happens when you cut it:
TA-DA! See the magical 3 layers? You have a Jell-O top, a creamy center and a cakey bottom. You probably would think I made each layer by hand and spend hours in the kitchen when in reality I cooked it while my girls did their homework. I let it chill overnight just to set up and unmolded the next day.
I grew up eating this Magic Strawberry Jell-O Cake. It’s been on my family for years. The typical go-to cake during family events and celebrations. Ever since I moved to the States I missed eating it. Luckily my mom emailed the recipe a few weeks ago. I had to adapt the quantities a bit since the jell-o boxes in Venezuela are bigger than here.
You can make this Magic Strawberry Jell-O Cake with any cake mold you would like. I think it looks beautiful using a bundt pan. I guess it’s the curves in the cake. The only thing to keep in mind is that regular lady fingers wouldn’t fit in the bundt pan so I cut them half.
Now that Summer is here I am always looking for refreshing desserts that are easy to make and that are kid friendly too. Having 2 girls at home, you can imagine how popular a pink cake can be. 🙂
The process for making this Magic Strawberry Jell-O Cake is simple and very straightforward. Heat the milk, sugar, and yolks until the mixture boils. Remove from heat and add the Jell-O. Mix well and then add the whipped egg whites. Finally, mold, add the ladyfingers and cover with the rest of the mixture. Let it chill overnight and you’re done. See? told ya it was easy!
Make it lighter! Use skim milk, sugar-free Jell-O, sugar substitute and eliminate the ladyfingers.
