Strawberry Cake

This is a recipe from my sister's in-laws.  I made it for two of my friends who also have birthdays in September a couple of years ago.  If you like strawberries and cake, you will like this cake!

Strawberry Cake
Ingredients:  White cake mix
                    3 Tbl flour
                    1/2 cup milk (or water)
                    1/2 cup oil
                    1 small package strawberry jello
                    3 eggs
                    1/2 the juice from 12 (or 16) oz package of frozen strawberries, thawed
                     (plus some strawberries that will pour in when draining the juice)

Mix all together and pour in prepared pan (greased and floured, 11 x 13 or large rectangle pan with tall sides works best... you need room to pour the icing/glaze on when hot).  The pan should look like it barely has any cake mix in it.

Bake at 325 degrees for 35-45 minutes.

Icing/Glaze Directions:

1 stick melted butter
3 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Rest of the thawed strawberries and juice

Mix well and pour over cake when it is hot.

My pan is really smaller than I should have used.  I believe I used multiple round pans before, but I forgot when I was making this cake for Thomas's birthday this month.
