The most delicious strawberry jello cake recipe using gelatin is what we are after! The cake will be soft and moist and have a lovely strawberry flavor. Made with real strawberries and topped with whipped cream, this dessert is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth!
The jello recipe we show you below will use gelatin. This food gelatin additive is extracted from the collagen of various animals. When gelatin is heated to a specific temperature and left alone for a set period, it will transform from a liquid to a solid. Because gelatin is a protein, it cannot be heated to its melting point (113 degrees F) and stay fluid. So, if it is heated beyond this point, the gelatin will begin to break down and form a meshy gel. This is precisely what happens in your delicious strawberry jello dessert.
Jello is a food that has been around since the early 1900s. It was created by a pharmacist named James Brady at his drugstore in Columbus, Ohio.
Jello was initially sold in a glass jar with a screw-on top. Jello was originally used in hospitals and nursing homes to feed patients unable to eat. It was a great source of calories and protein for the elderly and infirm.
But by the late 1950s, jello began gaining traction in the home and the grocery store. At this time, jello was often sold in a plastic container that could be reused. This was a huge convenience for the consumer.
Today, jello is still used as a source of nutrition in hospitals and nursing homes. But it has also been adopted by the home cooking crowd. There are endless varieties of jello recipes available online. You can even purchase pre-made jello mixes that come in single-serving containers.
