My husband and I used to live in a small rural community as farmers in West Texas when we were first married.  Our social circle was centered around our church family and quite often, we would have old fashioned potluck suppers.  I have never seen such awesome food.  No one would ever consider buying a dessert or skimping on butter and if they brought fried chicken, it was homemade.  Granted, it wasn’t healthy but back then, that wasn’t the point.  There was such a spirit of family communion and sharing of lives and love of God.  These gatherings were the highlight of our lives.

Anytime someone would bring something different to the table that was delicious, I would get the recipe and I still have most of those in my recipe file.  I rarely make them because they are not recipes that are heart healthy but every so often, I pull one out.

The other day, my daughter made a cake that she had adapted to be gluten-free for a family get-together.  The minute I bit into it, I knew that it was one that we used to have at church fellowships when we were farmers.  She gave me the recipe and I thought I would share it.

If you need this to be gluten-free, just use a Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free White Cake Mix.


1 white cake mix
1—3 oz box Strawberry Jello
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs, separated
1/2 cup hot water
10 oz frozen strawberries, thawed and drained.

Reserve 1/3 of the strawberries for the icing.
Dissolve the Jello in the hot water.  Drains, smash and cut up the strawberries.  Add the egg yolks and the rest of the ingredients to the Jello and beat for 2 minutes.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites until fluffy.  Fold into the cake mixture….gently.

Grease 3–9” cake pans.  Cook at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Cool and then ice.


1 lb. powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1/3 of the frozen strawberries


As you can see, I put sprinkles on top.  I forgot to take a photo until we cut into it but it was really festive looking.  The kids loved it.

I forgot about this cake. I love that it’s so easy to make with the new boxed gf cake mixes. Looks like a great one for Valentine’s Day. Thanks so much for sharing this and jogging my memory.

I was just wondering what to make for dessert tonight. I even have some fresh strawberries in the fridge that need to be used up. Perfect timing!

Thanks for sharing this with Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in
which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you
center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
