Good Old Jello Poke Cake

Making jello poke cake is as easy as a summer breeze. Perfect dessert for parties or backyard barbecues.

Since I will be making this cake this weekend for visiting family, I thought I would share this old post with you.

All you have to do is bake a cake as usual and let cool. You can do a sheet cake or two rounds like I did. Once cooled, poke holes all over the cake and dissolve one 3oz. box of jello into 2 cups of boiling water and pour over the cake. Refrigerate at least three hours and place the bottom of the cake pan in warm water before you flip the cake out of the pan. Then frost with whipped cream. I used real whipping cream but you could use Cool Whip if you would prefer. I put sliced strawberries between the layers and garnished with berries on top. Keep refrigerated until serving.


  1. I haven't made one of those is years..but what a delightful and refreshing spring cake that will be to welcome your sister!

  2. My mom used to make this cake all the time. She loved to use pineapple jello and cool whip and put coconut on top. It was delicious!

  3. I haven't thought about this cake in forever.
    It is so yummy.

  4. I have never had one of these! It sounds hard to make, though.

  5. I have never heard of such, but I bet my hubby would love this. It sounds easy enough, so I just may try it. Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  6. I've never heard of this. I'd love to see what the inside looks like!

  7. I have never made one of these, but I think I will try it. It looks especially good with whipped cream on top. And strawberries, yum!
