The Freshman Cook: Strawberry Sprinkled Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

Please Rate this Recipe

It is time for #BundtBakers again, and this month we are celebrating “SPRINKLES”! Can you think of anything more fun! The idea is that the sprinkles can really be anything that you sprinkle on or in your bundt. I wanted to make something that is fun and colorful, and of course, tasty! So I made a Strawberry Sprinkled Bundt Cake. I started with a white cake, added some strawberry jello for color and some crushed fresh strawberries for the yummy taste. I topped it with a lemon glaze, like on a donut, and let loose with the sprinkles! Fun~Fun~Fun! I hope you enjoy it!

Strawberry Sprinkled Bundt Cake

2 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
3/4 cup Shortening
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 cup Milk
1-3 oz. box Sugar Free Jello
1 1/2 cups Fresh Strawberries
5 Egg Whites

Clear Lemon Glaze 

3/4 cups Confectioner’s Sugar 
2 tablespoons Warm Water
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees to bake bundt cake.

Mix the flour and baking powder together in a bowl and set aside. Beat the shortening in a mixer for 30 seconds. Mix in sugar and vanilla. Add the milk and dry ingredients that you set aside, alternating between the two, and mixing after each addition. Add jello mix and mix until combined. Beat the egg whites in a separate mixer until stiff peaks form.  Take the tops off of the strawberries. Cut each berry in half and then in half again. Place on a plate like above, and use a fork to smash down each piece. Add smashed berries to the cake batter. Fold egg whites in to the cake batter.
Grease and flour your bundt pan. Pour batter in and cook cakes for 20-25 minutes. Let cool for fifteen minutes, but take a toothpick to the sides of the bundt right after taking it from the oven.
Whisk the confectioner’s sugar, warm water, and lemon juice together. If the glaze seems too thin, add more confectioner’s sugar, a little at a time, to get the consistency you want. Drizzle over the cakes.
Add sprinkles and fun! Enjoy!
