Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced, plus some for garnish
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free strawberry jam, plus 3 tablespoons, divided
  • 1 (18.25 oz) box white cake mix
  • 1 (0.30 oz) package sugar-free strawberry gelatin
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 (8 oz) package reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350º degrees. Spray two 9-inch round cake pans with nonstick spray. Line with wax-paper rounds; spray with nonstick spray.

 

Puree the strawberries and 3 tablespoons of jam in a food processor. Set aside.

 

Combine the cake mix and gelatin in a large mixing bowl. Beat in the strawberry puree, egg whites, oil and water with hand mixer at medium speed until thickened, about 2 minutes.

 

Divide the batter evenly between the pans. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in pans 10 minutes. Invert the layers onto racks and remove the wax paper; let cool completely.

 

For the frosting: With clean beaters, beat the cream cheese and butter in a medium bowl with a hand mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the 1/4 cup of jam and the strawberry extract. Gradually add the confectioner's sugar, beating until smooth.

 

Place 1 cake layer on a serving plate. Spread 1/3 of the frosting over the cake layer. Top with the remaining layer. Spread the remaining frosting over the top and sides of the cake. Garnish with the strawberries, if using.
