I made a good old fashioned Jello Poke Cake for St. Patrick’s Day. It was really good and easy.
1 package white cake mix (regular size)
2 packages (3 ounces each) lime gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup cold milk
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.
In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water and set aside.
With a meat fork or wooden skewer, poke holes about 2 in. apart into cooled cake.
Slowly pour gelatin over cake. Cover and refrigerate.
In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes (mixture will be thick). Fold in whipped topping.
Spread over cake. Decorate with sprinkles.
Cover and refrigerate until serving.
