Lemon Lime Poke Cake

What a crazy summer we’ve been having. I’ve enjoyed every adventure we’ve had but I do love it when we get to have a moment at home. I’m a baker by choice. I love to bake bread, cakes, cookies, anything really. I forget about the simple, easy things I can make sometimes but when all I have is a day here or there I’ve got to do what I can do.

My mom made poke cakes when I was growing up. We loved them. The cool, refreshing flavors were perfect for our hot summers. So I decided to make one, a lemon lime one.

Lemon Lime Poke Cake

  • yellow cake recipe
  • 1 3-oz pkg lime jello
  • 1 8-oz container Cool Whip
  • 1 3-oz pkg INSTANT pudding
  • 1 1/2 c. cold milk

Make a yellow cake from scratch or box, your choice. Bake in a 9 x 13 pan. Let it cool. Dissolve 3 oz of lime jello in 3/4 c boiling water. Stir in 1/2 c cold water and set aside. Poke lots of holes in the top of the cake, using a fork. Twist the fork slightly when you poke, so that the holes are wide enough to absorb liquid. Slowly and carefully, pour the lime jello mixture over the top of the cake, making sure that most of the liquid ends up in the holes. It’s ok if some of it ends up running off the sides of the cake. Allow to cool completely. Place the cake in the refrigerator to set. Meanwhile, whisk lemon pudding with milk until thickened. Fold in whipped topping and use this mixture to frost the cake.

Enjoy!! Make sure you put any leftover cake in the refrigerator.
