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. 
 

 Ingredients:
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)
 
 
Instructions:
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!!

  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...
