Strawberry Poke Cake

16 Nov

I found this recipe today, and I’m SO EXCITED about the possibilities! Today I made white cake with Strawberry jello. I think it would also be awesome with lemon cake and cherry jello, chocolate cake and raspberry jello… the possibilities are endless. I will say, I was VERY surprised how much I loved this. Very light. Would be great for Summer.

– 1 boxed white cake mix
– 3 egg whites
– 12 oz diet or “10” 7 up. ( or diet sprite, or sprite zero, or diet ginger ale)
– 1 small box of sugar free jello
– 1 cup boiled water
– 1/2 cup cold water
– 1 tub of light cool whip

1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, soda, and egg whites. Pour into a 9 x13 pan sprayed with non-stick spray.

2. Bake cake according to directions on box. Once cake is finished, cool 30 min.

3. Once cake has cooled, use a 2 prong meat fork (or a knife, or wooden skewer) to poke many holes all the way through the cake, to the bottom of the pan.

4. Boil cup of water. Once its boiled, mix with jello until dissolved. Add cold water, mix well.

5. Pour jello mixture evenly over cake. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or more.

6. Top Cake with cool whip before serving.

12 Servings= 191 Calories per slice

* Another great option is to use a small box of sugar free instant strawberry pudding. Mix with 1 cup of cold water, and then softly fold in cool whip. This Icing would be awesome on this cake. I didn’t use it this time because I was trying to get the cake under 200 Calories, and this would have pushed it just slightly over.

    I have made this same recipe concept with Sugar Free Chocolate pudding as well. It’s really good and a real pleaser for the children.

    Im trying the lemon cake and cherry jello cake this weekend! Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Love these cakes. So light and not overly sweet but sweet enough to take care of those cravings.
