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.)
Kinda funny…but I made this yesterday. 🙂 Only I used a white cake mix with the addition of lime zest, lime jello, and a vanilla frosting with lime juice and zest. Yum!
That cake looks so yummy! I like Kandice’s suggestion too! Looks like I will be making a cake soon! 🙂
YUM! Thanks for the post.
looked so yummy we made it for FHE treat tonight…mmmmm
My aunt use to make this cake when I was growing up and I loved it! I bought all the ingredients I needed at the store tonight and I will be making this tomorrow! Can’t wait!! Brings back good memories
I absolutely love the lime version of this cake! It would be fun with lemon, orange and any flavor!!
If you don’t use cool whip icing does the cake have to be refrigerated??
