Growing up we spent every birthday together with chinese take out, treats, a movie, and of course- cake. (Okay, not the healthiest.. but we were teenagers..)
While she was at my house, she said, “Remember that yummy cold cake with the Jello your mom used to make?”
Of course I remembered… and for reminiscent sake, Heather made me a jello poke cake for my birthday.
It was so yummy!
For this cake, we got the recipe from the Betty Crocker Website.
Jello Poke Cake
|1||box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix|
|1 1/3||cups water|
|1/2||cup vegetable oil|
|1||package (4-serving size) strawberry- or raspberry-flavored gelatin|
|1||cup boiling water|
|1/2||cup cold water|
Fresh strawberries or raspberries, if desired
(we did not remove the cake before putting the cool whip and strawberries on it, we just did it in the pan for easier storing, and it worked great.)
