Deb’s Jello Cake.

10 06 2011

We celebrated Joe’s Birthday yesterday. When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday meal, he said, “Steak and Mom’s Strawberry Cake”.  I do a lot of baking, I mean a lot of baking! This is the 2nd time in the last few years that Joe has requested this cake. The recipe itself is very simple, but it’s great! My Mother-in-law has an amazing ability to make low fat and fat free meals and desserts that are AMAZING!  This is known by many as a Jello Poke Cake.  It is simple, moist and as far as cakes go, not too horrible for you.

Deb’s Jello Cake

1 white cake mix, prepared as directed on box and cooled

1 (4 serving) box Strawberry or Raspberry jello

1 c. boiling water

1/2 c. cold water

1 tube fat-free cool whip

Raspberries or Strawberries to garnish

Prepare white cake mix as directed on box. Cool completely. Poke holes using fork all over surface of cake. Boil 1 c. water and add gelatin. Stir and add 1/2 c. cold water. Pour jello mixture over prepared and cooled cake. Refrigerate at least 3 hours. Top with cool whip and fresh berries. Enjoy!

I love the pretty colors of your jello cake. When I was young, we used to make a chocolate orange version and a lemon lime version. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday and I’d love it if you come by and link your cake up.
