Strawberry Poke Cake

Please follow and like us:

This cake was easy to make and tasted delicious!! It would be a perfect summertime cake since it’s strawberry and on the lighter side. Tonight, for me, it was a perfect wintertime cake. 🙂

When I first saw that you could mix soda with cake mix I thought it was a crazy idea.

I wondered how it could possibly work?? But it worked!

Of course I used my kids as guinea pigs. I had them each try the cake and tell me if they liked it.

They both liked it and were surprised to find out that there was no oil or eggs used to make the cake.

The most difficult part of this recipe is waiting for the cake to cool in the refrigerator. Trust me when I say it is so worth it!

You bake the cake and let that cool for about 15 minutes. Then you poke holes in the cake using a fork.

Make the jello, then pour it over the cake. Cover the cake and let it sit in the fridge for 2 hours.

I usually make this cake the night before so it can sit in the fridge overnight. I just wait until I am about to serve it before I add the Cool Whip.

This cake is a crowd pleaser! Even people not following WW love it!

Hello, do you follow the instructions on the cake mix and use the eggs and oil? Or do you leave it out? There is no mention either way. Thank you
