Recipe Fridays: Berry Poke Cake

I have been on a baking kick for the past month or so. And because I don't have a lot of time to spend baking I have been using a lot of cake mixes from a box and adding things to spice it up. This Berry Poke Cake was something I remember my mom making when I was in high school. Quick and, of course, scrumptious!

1 box of yellow or white cake mix
1 box of jello--any flavor, usually strawberry (hence the "Berry" Poke Cake)
Cool whip or frosting

Bake cake as directed. When it's done baking poke holes into it, about half an inch apart. Make jello according to the directions (up through it still being a liquid). Pour the liquid mixture over the cake. Then chill the cake in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Top with cool whip/frosting and serve.


  1. What does it come out like? Is it cake with pools of jello, or does the jello merge into the whole cake? The people want to know!

  2. Ah, I am a late replier. The jello merges into the cake--without the jello-y texture. It's just verrrry moist.
