Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Today was our last Bible study group for the season. To celebrate a wonderful and blessed time together, we decided to hold a salad luncheon after worship.
 The days have been rainy, cold, and gloomy so I thought this summertime dessert might be a treat for the ladies.
Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake
This is a super easy one!
2 cups crushed fresh strawberries
1 (6ounce)  pkg. strawberry jello
3 cups minature marshmellows
1 white box cake mix
In a 9x13 inch pan spread the crushed strawberries on the bottom.
(I didn't have a full 2 cups today,woops)
Sprinkle the strawberry jello over the strawberries.
Evenly distribute the marshmellows over the top of this mixture.
Make the cake batter according to the instructions on the box.
Pour this over top the marshmellows.
Bake in a 350F. preheated oven for 35 minutes.
(I would start checking for doneness at 30 minutes)
Take out of the oven and cool for 15 minutes.
Run a knife around the edge of the cake, then invert onto your serving platter.
Let cool before serving.
Now how easy is that?
I can't wait until fresh strawberries are available this summer!
I have been suffering with a bad case of shoulder bursitis. This is how I have been spending most of my time lately.
On the couch, feet propped up, trying to rotate between ice and heating pad. My little Shaggy can't figure out why mom isn't up and going.
Lots of things to do for the weekend, so I hope this pain goes away soon!



  1. First off I hope you feel better soon! The weather has been so yucky! Good job on backing a summer dessert to cheer things up! I think I need to do the same! I have never had this but I will be pinning it to try because it looks delicious! Thanks for sharing lady!!!

  2. The cake looks so good. I love strawberries!

    I hope you feel better very soon.

  3. Oh, Liz, I feel for you - many years ago I had an 'attack' of bursitis in my right shoulder. It took 2 cortisone shots, many ice packs, and several weeks before I was back to normal (well, almost normal.) I truly hope you make a speedy recovery. In the meantime, I'm going to try that delicious sounding strawberry recipe. -- Jan
