Strawberry Upside Down Cake

For the Love of Strawberries! 

We are all familiar with Pineapple Upside Down Cake, but I want to show you a fabulous variation of that wonderful desert that uses strawberries instead of pineapple.

This is an extremely easy recipe that you could easily throw together in a few minutes, bake it for 50 minutes and have the perfect Valentine's Day cake for your sweetheart.

Strawberry Upside Down Cake Recipe

This Strawberry Upside Down Cake Recipe calls for for only 3 simple ingredients in addition to the fresh strawberries.  When you see the recipe, you will be very surprised to discover that this Strawberry Upside Down Cake is made with a store purchased box cake mix, marshmallows, gelatin and the strawberries.

It does have to bake for 50 minutes and cool for at least 1 hr., but the prep will be fast and easy.

Let me note however, the photo of the Strawberry Upside Down Cake shows a round cake.  The recipe calls for a 9 x 13 baking pan.   In order to get the round cake as shown, I would recommend using a non-stick springform pan like the one shown below.

Using a Springform Pan with This Recipe

If you use the springform pan, do not release the side until the cake is completely cool.   This will take at least 2 hrs.  

Also, this cake mixture is very runny.   It is not like a cheesecake.  You will need to put some type of protector like a thin cookie tray under the springform pan to protect the bottom of your oven.
