Raspberry Poke Cake

Easy just got easier!

Poke (pun intended) around in your pantry and fridge and you'll probably find everything you need to make a "poke" cake.  Easy is even easier with a this classic recipe!

The beauty of these cakes is that you can change the cake mix and gelatin to any flavor that suits your fancy.  My hubby's favorite is "white cake with raspberry gelatin" and my daughter-in-law's is "lemon cake with lime gelatin". 

Whatever flavors you like, it's probably a possibility with a quick and easy, not to mention delicious, Poke Cake!


1 box white cake mix (baked according to box directions)
1 (4-serving) raspberry-flavored gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 (8oz. container) Cool Whip (thawed)
Fresh raspberries to garnish top, if desired

Heat oven to 350'F.   Grease or spray 9x13" cake pan.

Make and cool cake as directed on box for 13x9"pan.

Pierce cooled cake all over with fork.  In small bowl, stir gelatin and boiling water until smooth; stir in cold water.  Pour over cake.  Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake. 

Refrigerate 2 hours.  Frost with whipped topping.  Garnish each piece separately with raspberries.

Store covered in refrigerator.
