I needed to make a cake for a co-workers birthday, and she wanted something light....so we decided on a poke cake. I had never made one before, but I am always game for something new to try...and I have now discovered THE perfect summer cake. Poke cake is so light and moist and yummy!!
So what is needed....actually not a lot. Cake mix, eggs, oil, water, cool whip and jello...Thats it!!
First make your cake to the box directions...I made a yellow cake...white would probably make a nicer pop for the jello color...but I find them too fussy with the egg whites, and lets be real...I can be a disaster in the kitchen! (Like I really made 2 cakes, but you dont get the pictures of the one that came out of the oven lopsided lol)
After it has cooled (I cooled it over night) then just poke poke poke...there is no wrong or right way, use a fork, spoon handle or a skewer like I did. Poke as many or as little holes as you want.
Next prepare the jello to the box directions, 1 cup boiling water, 1 cup ice water...and slowly pour over the cake and watch it absorb in.
I "frosted" it with cool whip...so nice and light.
Voila....a beautiful colorful cake!!!
What is your favorite summer dessert?
