As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.


  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 2 boxes frozen strawberries, thawed (or 2 1/2 cups sliced and partly mashed fresh strawberries, sweetened to taste)
  • 1 box strawberry gelatin
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening (not liquid)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Grease the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan. Do not grease the sides. Spread marshmallows over bottom of pan. Even though the recipe calls for 1 cup marshmallows, you can use up to 2 cups.
  2. Mix the strawberries and gelatin and set aside.
  3. Make a batter of the remaining ingredients and spread over marshmallows.
  4. Dribble strawberry and gelatin mixture over batter.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden pick Comes out clean. The marshmallows go to the top to form a glaze and the strawberries go to the bottom and are thickened with the gelatin without coloring the batter.
