Lemon Lime Poke Cake

This is one of my favorite desserts that I loved having when I was growing up.  And it's one that hasn't gone out of style.  Just ask Pinterest.  Do a search and you'll be amazed at all the different flavors they have.  I have the urge to try every last one of them!

This is so easy and everyone will love it.  Even my "I don't like frosting" kids (the CrAzY ones!!)  love this.  And it is a perfect dessert for spring.  Anything lemony is wonderful this time of year!  I always start craving Lemon Cheesecake Bars every year around this time, and Lemon Bundt Cake, and Crack Cookies (aka Lemon Drop Cookies) along with anything else lemon!

This recipe is also so versatile.  If you're not a fanatic about lemon like I am...do a strawberry cake or raspberry and just use a vanilla pudding package instead of lemon.  The sky's the limit!

Lemon Lime Poke Cake
PRINT RECIPE


For the cake:
1 white cake mix (plus ingredients listed on box)
1 small package lime jello
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water

For frosting:
1 envelope Dream Whip
1 small package instant lemon pudding
1 1/2 cups cold milk

Cool Whip or whipped topping

Make the cake according to package directions.  Cool cake for about 20 minutes.  Using a utility fork poke cake about every 1/2 inch or so; set aside.


Make jello by dissolving the jello mix in the boiling water.  After it is dissolved add the cold water.  Pour the jello slowly over the cake covering all the holes.  Chill for 3-4 hours.

After cake has chilled start the frosting.  Add all ingredients into a mixer and beat until it thickens.  Then frost away.


Now just top the pudding frosting with Cool Whip or sweetened whipped cream and add some green sprinkles...or whatever...or nothing!
