Simple Jello Poke Cake
1(18 ozs) box cake mix, any flavor
ingredients for mixing cake
1 sm.(4 serv.) box (sugar free) red jello
(any color/flavor is fine)
1 c. boiling water
1/2 c. cold water
1 (8 ozs) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Mix and bake cake according to box instructions, baking in a 9″ X 13″ baking pan. Cool about 30 minutes. After removing cake from oven, I mix the jello and boiling water, stirring until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water.
Let stand until ready to use.
Using a large pronged fork, poke holes evenly over the top of the cooled cake. Pour jello over cake, filling all the ‘holes’ as you go. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Frost with whipped topping; garnish with fresh fruit
(to match your jello flavor, if desired). Store covered in the fridge.
