When you think of a Jello cake recipe, there's only one cake that is so popular that it immediately pops into your head: the classic Jello poke cake. This cake is famous for being extremely flexible in its use of gelatin flavors. When it's sliced into, you'll see the colorful stripes inside. Whatever flavor you use it's sure to be a hit.
1 package white or yellow cake mix (for two layers)
1 small package flavored gelatin, any flavor
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water (for the cake mix)
1 (12 oz.) container Cool Whip
1 cup water (for gelatin)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare cake, according to package directions, using eggs, oil and water. Bake cake in a 13x9-inch pan for 40 to 45 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for at least 15 minutes.
Poke holes across the entire surface of cake with a fork.
Dissolve the gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. Pour the warm gelatin slowly over the surface of the cake (gelatin will soak into the cake). Place cake in the refrigerator and chill for about 4 hours.
