Gelatin Poke Cake

Here is a true summertime favorite, Gelatin Poke Cake.  A friend from church made this for potluck.  Recently, I made it for a ladies group.  It's super yummy, moist and easy to make.  This recipe can most likely be found in church or community cookbooks.  I found mine online at Duncan Hines

  • 1 Small Box of Strawberry Flavored Gelatin or other favorite flavor ( You could do orange and do a pineapple/coconut topping with the whipped cream).
  • 1 Box Duncan Hines White Cake Mix
  • 1 1/3 Cups Water
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil or Apple Sauce 
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • 1 Cup Cold Water
  • 1 Container  Light Whipped Topping
  • Sliced strawberries or sprinkles for topping
To Make
Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box and pour the batter into a 13" x 9" greased baking  pan.   Bake as directed. 
After it is baked, take it out and allow the cake to cool.
As the cake is cooling, you can prepare the Jello. 
To do this,  dissolve package of gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water.  Then, add 1 cup of cold water. 
Now, you want to take a skewer (some people use a fork) and poke holes all around your cake.   Pour the gelatin mixture evenly over the cake.  Now, cover and put in the frig for a couple of hours to set. 
When you are about to serve the cake, top it with the whipped cream and berries or other decorations.  Enjoy!
