Strawberry Shortcut Cake

Fragaria × ananassa 'Chandler,' a short-day co...Image via WikipediaI seem to be on a dessert kick lately.  By the way, did you know that a cake that has been cut results in calorie leakage?  Lol.
This recipe comes from an old church cookbook from my collection.  It is really good.
Tried and True as TOH puts it.

Strawberry Shortcut Cake
1 cup miniature marshmallows
2 cups (10 oz. pkg.) frozen strawberries, sliced, in syrup, thawed completely
1 (3 oz) package Strawberry Jello
2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup solid shortening
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large eggs

Generously grease the the bottom only of a 13-inch x 9-inch baking pan.  Thoroughly combine completely the strawberries in syrup with dry gelatin; set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except the marshmallows.  Place the marshmallows in an even layer in bottom of cake pan.  Pour batter evenly over marshmallows.  Spoon strawberry mixture evenly over the batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.
When you remove from the oven you will see that the strawberries have sunk to the bottom, the cake is in the middle, and the marshmallows are on top.  WOW! It's Magic!
