Texas Pepper Jelly cake It’s still winter, of course, but it won’t be all that long until spring, and with the spring come the strawberries!

Our Strawberry Habanero cake will turn your simple dinner dessert into a real party! And did I mention that it’s unbelievably delicious?!

You can, of course, make the cake completely from scratch, but our version is a lot easier!


1 strawberry cake mix
2 eggs
1/8 cup oil
1/4 cup Strawberry Habanero pepper jellyTexas Pepper Jelly Strawberry Habanero
1/4 cup water
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 can strawberry icing, or make your own.

What to do:

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the sliced strawberries and icing, and mix well. Pour into two buttered layer cake pans, and bake for approximately 32 minutes. When your toothpick comes out clean, your cake is done.

Let the cakes cool. Turn one layer upside-down onto a plate and frost thickly. Turn the other layer right-side-up on top of the first layer, and frost completely. Cover frosting with sliced strawberries.

I usually let the cake chill in the refrigerator for an hour or two before I serve it. It’s great with ice cream! I also like to mix a tablespoon of Strawberry Habanero pepper jelly in the icing before I start frosting the cake. Your call.

Strawberry Habanero Cake is a perfect Superbowl Party food!
