 DIRECTIONS:
 Generously grease the bottom of a 13 x 9 pan; sprinkle marshmallows evenly over
  the
 bottom of the pan. Thoroughly combine thawed strawberries and syrup with dry ge
 latin;
 set aside. In large bowl combine remaining ingredients. Blend at low speed unti
 l
 moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour batter evenly over marshmallows
 .
 Then spoon strawberry mixture evenly over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50
 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Serve warm or cool wi
 th
 ice cream. 
 *check often right before cooking time is finished. Be careful not to scorch th

 The strawberries will be on bottom, the cake part stays in the middle, and the
 marshmallows rise to the top. Hope you enjoy!!
