My true love asked for a cake.
So I looked through my easy recipes,
And found something new to bake.
Start by baking a plain white cake in a 9×13 pan. Follow recipe on box. After it’s completely cooled, take the handle side of a wooden spoon or spatula and poke holes all over the top, approximately an inch apart, going all the way to the bottom.
Next, in a side bowl, mix 1 box of your favorite flavor of jello with 1 cup of boiling water. Stir. Once powder is dissolved, mix in another quarter cup of cold water. Pour liquid over cake, letting it seep into the holes. Let cool for one hour.
Thaw a small container of cool whip in refrigerator. When it’s soft enough to spread, cover top of cake. Variations: for the holidays, I recommend cherry, strawberry, or strawberry-banana flavored jello. Depending on the flavor you pick, you can add sliced fruit on top of the cool whip. Or you can shake green and red sprinkles for a more festive look. Instead of a 9×13, you can also make two 9” round cakes and stack with cool whip in between the layers in addition to covering the entire outside. Or make cupcakes and poke four holes in the top of each. For more flavor, use 2 boxes of jello and 2 cups of boiling water, with half cup cold water.
Now help me welcome Meda White, who released the first book in her new series just this summer.
