Strawberry Buns

Sometimes I feel like baking but don't always want to do it from scratch.  And on this particular morning, it was exactly how I felt.  The result....Strawberry Buns.

Rather than bake this strawberry cake recipe in cake form, I used little aluminum tins in the shape of mini pies....so cute.  The result are little muffin tops which I call 'Buns'.




Fun for a brunch, a girl's birthday or maybe if you fancy strawberry cake!  I topped mine with Whip Cream in a Jar, you can make yourself in minutes.

So here's the modified, easy, no thinking, ready to mix recipe by Paula Dean....



















  • Strawberry Buns

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) box white cake mix
  • 1 (3-ounce) box strawberry-flavored instant gelatin
  • 1 (15-ounce) package frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed and pureed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease mini tins or a muffin top baking tray.  If you're using the mini tins, I placed mine on a baking sheet to place in the oven.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix and gelatin. Add pureed strawberries, eggs, oil, and water; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into prepared pans, and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in pans.
