This cake takes me back to when I was little. This was my Grandfathers favorite cake. My aunt would make it for him. Its very delish!


  • 1 box cake (prefer Duncan Hines Super Moist White)
  • 1 small box jello (strawberry or cherry)
  • 1 can of Big Red soda- if you don't have Big Red (texas thing).. you can use any red soda.
  • 1 box vanilla pudding
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip
  • Maraschino Cherries / Pineapple/ Pecans for garnish optional


  • 1. Bake Cake as directed in 13 x 9 in. pan, (clear glass preferred its prettier) ;o)
  • 2. While cake is baking, prepare Jello as directed, EXCEPT when directions call for 1 cup of cold water.... USE INSTEAD 1 cup of "Big Red" (red soda). Stir until jello is completely dissolved.
  • 3. Once cake is done, let cool, then poke holes all over the cake using fork and pour "Big Red Jello" over cake and let cake set in refrigerator at least 4 hrs. Just like, if you were letting the jello set.
  • 4. Once cake is set, make Vanilla pudding according to package directions and spread over top of cake.
  • 5. Next add a layer of Cool Whip on top and Garnish with your choice of toppings. (we prefer cherries)
