Gluten Free Strawberry Cake

 I found this strawberry cake recipe, by Laura Fraembs, in Radish Magazine the other day that looked too good to be true. To my surprise the recipe was gluten-free and literally a piece of cake to make.

This cake uses only store-bought gluten free cake mix, frozen strawberries, sugar, flour, eggs, oil, and water. Great cake that only takes an extra 2 minutes to make compared to regular store-bought cake mix.

The best part about this recipe is it will look as though you slaved all day over making this fresh strawberry cake with creamy frosting. No worries though, this recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare and half an hour to cook!

4. Combine frosting and other half of strawberries into bowl and blend strawberries into frosting. Frost cool cake then serve and chill. Enjoy!
