Key Ingredients You’ll Need

  • White Cake Mix: Using a boxed mix makes the recipe an even quicker one, but you can choose to make your own homemade cake mix.
  • Strawberries: You will need chopped fresh strawberries as well as strawberry jello.

How To Make Strawberry Upside Down Cake

  • Step 1. Set the oven to 350 degrees. Follow the instructions on the white cake mix and set it aside.
  • Step 2. Arrange the strawberries in a 9 x 13-inch cake pan greased with baking spray. Sprinkle the dry jello mix on top of the strawberries evenly.
  • Step 3. Add the mini marshmallows on top evenly.
  • Step 4. Pour the prepared cake mix into the baking dish and place it into the oven to bake for 50 minutes or until a tester toothpick comes out clean of batter. Let the cake cool for 20 minutes.
  • Step 5. Use a knife to carefully run around the edge of the finished cake and flip it onto a tray. Serve by itself or a dollop of whipped cream (or scoop of vanilla ice cream) and enjoy!

Can I Use Frozen Berries?

Yes! You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. You can also replace with other berries including blueberries, raspberries or blackberries for this recipe. I prefer using fresh fruit because it tastes better in my opinion, but either one works.

How To Store Strawberry Upside Down Cake?

Place the cake into an airtight container or use a baking dish with a lid. A baking dish with a lid will save you from doing more dishes. Keep the cake at room temperature, in the fridge, or freezer.

    Did everyone here bake it for 50 minutes? My toothpick was coming out clean at about 30 minutes at 350.

    Just curious if anyone else had a shorter baking time. It’s still cooling, hopefully it’s not awful.

    Very good! I’ve used fresh or frozen strawberries with equally good results. I’ve also used sugar free jello with good results. This one will be a favorite with the strawberry lovers in your family.
