Quick Strawberry Cake (GF, TMX)
Rora wanted strawberry cake but all the recipes i'd used before, and those i could find, used nuts (our school is nut free) except those with jello / jelly. I had an unopened packet of jelly in the pantry without a box which i thought was probably strawberry or something like it, and one last packet cake box, so decided to go with that.
I started with this recipe but changed it to suit - i couldn't see why a recipe with a packet cake AND jelly would need more sugar! I also didn't have any strawberry puree, only frozen berries (fresh frozen by me for smoothies, but still frozen). the packet cake mix i had was the Basco Vanilla Cupcakes mix.
around 8 medium - large hulled Strawberries
1 box of Gluten Free cake mix
1 box of Strawberry Jelly mix
place whole strawberries in the thermomix and "puree" for 60 seconds on speed 6, 90'
dump everything else in and mix until lump free (around 10 secs, scrape down, 10 secs)
place into muffin tray - makes 12 large muffins and bake at 160'c for around 20 minutes or until firm to touch
I will probably use the frosting pack to make some frosting to go on top later
super easy and the kids loved them! even if they aren't exactly health food ;)
