  6. Add the flour mixture and strawberry milk to the cake batter alternatively.  Start and end with the flour mixture and beat until combined after each addition.  (Flour-Milk-Flour-Milk-Flour)

  8. Next stir in the vanilla extract.
  9. Transfer the cake batter to a 9×13 sheet pan.  Spread evenly.  Bake for 30 minutes.

While the cake is baking, prepare the cream cheese frosting.  Add the cream cheese and butter to a large mixing bowl.  Beat until combined.  Then add in the strawberry jam, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.  Beat again until smooth.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure all ingredients get combined evenly.
