Strawberry Shortcut Cake

Saw this on an old college friend's wife's blog (did you follow that?) and it seriously is right up my alley: strawberries, marshmallows and jello BAKED!  And it's magic...the marshmallows and batter go on the bottom but end up on top, amazing! :)  Have fun and enjoy!


1 Cup of Mini Marshmallows
2 Cups (2 10 oz pkg) Frozen, sliced strawberries and syrup. completely thawed
1 Pkg(3oz) Strawberry Jello
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Shortening
3 tsps Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Eggs


1. Grease bottom of 9 x 13 pan and sprinkle marshmallows evenly over the bottom of the pan and set aside

2. Thoroughly combine completely thawed strawberries and syrup with dry Jello. Set aside

3. In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Blend at low speed until moistened. Beat for 3 minutes at medium speed, scraping sides occasionally.  Pour batter evenly over the marshmallows.

4. Spoon Strawberry mixture evenly over batter.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
6. Serve warm or cool with either ice cream, or whipped cream. YUM!
