Cherry Lemonade Bundt Cake with Lemon Cool whip Frosting

17 May

This cake is very light, and would be great for summer. It’s the type of cake some people refer to as “poke” cake, meaning you poke holes in the cake and fill them (with jello in this case). If you love this idea, you can also check out my strawberry poke cake, or my tiramisu.

Ingredients:

  • 1 boxed lemon cake mix
  • 3 egg whites
  • 12 oz diet or “10” 7 up. ( or diet sprite, or sprite zero, or diet ginger ale)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 small box of sugar free cherry jello
  • 1 cup boiled water
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 tub of light cool whip
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 small box (4 servings) of sugar free, instant lemon pudding
  • 2-3 drops yellow food coloring (optional)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, soda, lemon juice and egg whites. Pour into a bundt cake 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 1/2 of jello mixture evenly over cake. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or more. Discard remaining jello.

6. After cake has cooled 2 hours, place a large plate, or platter over the top of the pan, and flip pan over to remove cake.

7. In a medium size bowl, mix milk and pudding mix until it thickens and lumps are smooth. Fold coolwhip, and yellow food coloring (optional) into mixture until well incorporated. Ice the cake with this mixture, then refrigerate at least 2 more hours before serving.
