Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is fun and easy.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 box white cake mix
12 ounces Diet 7up or Sprite Zero
2 boxes of 4 serving Jello - any flavor, I used strawberry
2 cups boiling water
1 container Cool Whip Fat Free


Mix the cake mix with the Diet 7 up (or make according to the cake mix with the usual eggs, oil and water). I am not sure why this works but it does. It makes any cake SUPER moist and it's less fat! Pour into a lightly Pam sprayed Bundt pan (or 13x9) and bake according to the cake mix directions.

When cake is done, allow to cool for about 10 min. Boil 2 cups water (I did it in the microwave) and add in the 2 boxes of JELLO. Be careful! The water really bubbles when the JELLO is added! :o) Mix until the JELLO is dissolved.

Carefully and slowly, poke holes in the cake with a fork. Use your best judgement regarding how many pokes to give it. We like ours really JELLO-y so I made a lot of pokes. Carefully pour the JELLO over the cake, evenly disbruting it around the cake. I do not usually use all of the JELLO mixture, and as you can see from the pictures, it's very JELLO-y.

Refridgerate for 3 or more hours. Spread Cool Whip on the cake, like frosting. Cover and store in refridgerator.

Again, this is more of a method than a recipe. You could use any kind of cake mix (lemon with strawberry jello would be divine!), diet soda methods or the usual oil, eggs and water, any flavor JELLO (sugarfree too), any type of Cool Whip (strawberry or chocolate - yummy!), or you could use frosting too! Enjoy!
