Strawberry Lemonade Poke Cake Recipe

Strawberry Lemonade Poke Cake
I have another easy dessert recipe to share with you!  I am always the one that brings dessert to birthday parties or family get-to-gethers which is fun but I hate bringing the same thing all the time. 

My family is all about Chocolate!  But some of us aren't so I decided to try something different.  Jude adores Lemon Desserts so I went with a Lemon Cake and poked a little Strawberry Lemonade into it!  ;)  I hope you can share this with your family and friends too!  It was a hit at our party!  The cake was so cool and yummy plus very moist...perfect for a HOT Colorado day. 

1-box of Lemon Cake (all ingredients to prepare cake as it says on the box)
1-small box of strawberry Jell-O
1 cup of lemonade
1 cup of water
1 container of Cool-Whip
2 cups of sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1.  Bake the Lemon cake as directed.  Let the cake cool completely after baking.

2.  Once the cake is cooled completely you will need to poke holes throughout the cake.  I used a large serving fork to do this.  Make sure you get to the bottom of the cake pan!

3. Prepare the Strawberry Jell-O using 1 cup of boiling water and 1 cup of Lemonade. Stir well!

4.  Pour the Strawberry Jell-O and Lemonade carefully over the entire cake.  Make sure all the “holes” are filled!

5.  Chill cake overnight.  This allows the Jell-O to set.

6.  When ready to serve prepare the “frosting” by pureeing 1 ½ cups of sliced strawberries.  I used our Magic Bullet.  Add the Strawberry puree to the Cool Whip creating a nice strawberry Cool Whip frosting. 
7.  Frost the cake and then put the remaining sliced strawberries on top of your cake. 

8.  Enjoy!!



  1. That looks amazing!! Pinning it!

  2. You know, I had never heard of poke cake until just recently. This looks scrumptious...

  3. This does look delicious and reminds me of something my mom used to make. I will give this a try in the next week or so.

  4. This looks ridiculously yummy. I am going to pin it to remember it.

  5. This looks so good. I don't have a cake mix, so I am going to try and make this with a homemade lemon cake and homemade strawberry jello...
