Lemon-Lime Poke Cake


  • 1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist Lemon Cake Mix
  • 1 package (3 oz.) lime gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 or 2 limes
  • cream whipped


1 _ Spray 9x13 baking pan with baking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir lemon zest into batter and spread in prepared pan. Bake according to package directions. Cool cake completely on a cooling rack.

2 _ In a small bowl, stir lime gelatin mix and 1 cup of boiling water together. Stir until gelatin is fully dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold water and mix.

3 _ Using a fork with long tines, poke holes every inch or so all over cooled cake, poking almost to bottom of cake. Pour prepared gelatin mixture over entire cake top, allowing it to soak into the holes. Cover cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours.

4 _ Cut cake into squares and place on serving plates. Cut lemon and lime into very thin slices. Garnish cake with whipped cream and lemon/lime slices.
