Strawberry Poke Cake – 3 Freestyle Points

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. 🙂

These are a few of the things I used for this recipe:

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!

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.

  1. I am going to try your recipe with cherry sf jello. With the 2 cups of water and 12 oz of 7-UP, is the cake almost too moist? It sounds great! Thanks.
