The recipe for the former first lady’s classic dessert was shared following her death.
The National Archives Museum celebrated the life and legacy of Rosalynn Carter by sharing one of her most beloved dessert recipes.
Described as a “Carter family favorite,” the former first lady’s strawberry cake recipe is as simple as it is classic. Printed with a letterhead from the White House, the recipe calls for packaged yellow cake mix, strawberry Jell-O, cooking oil, chopped nuts, eggs, flour, and strawberries. The instructions direct bakers to mix, bake, and serve either plain or with whipped cream.
Easy and delicious.
“Today, we honor the remarkable legacy of Rosalynn Carter, whose warmth touched the nation,” the museum wrote on social media alongside a copy of the recipe. “As we remember her, we share one of her favorite recipes—a classic strawberry cake—reflecting the sweetness she brought to so many.”
The museum replied with more of Rosalynn’s recipes including the “Plains Special” cheese ring and her eggplant souffle.
Rosalynn died at home in Plains, Georgia, at the age of 96 on Sunday. “She died peacefully, with family by her side,” according to The Carter Center.
In addition to her husband, President Jimmy Carter, the former first lady is survived by their children—Jack, Chip, Jeff, and Amy—and 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Jimmy is expected to attend a public tribute service to his wife at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church at the Emory University campus Tuesday. A private funeral service for family and invited friends is set to take place Wednesday morning at the couple’s beloved Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains.
