Lemon Lime Jell-o Poke Cake

One of my mother-in-laws classic summer family desserts was jell-o poke cake. She usually made two flavors for our family summer gathering. My favorite was always the Lemon-Lime version. So of course, I “insisted” that it be on the menu for RETREAT.

The cool thing about this dessert, is how easy it is! And because it is chilled, it is light and refreshing!

Lemon-lime Jell-o Poke Cake

Ingredients
– Lemon cake mix plus egg, oil and water
– Lime Jell-o (not sugar free) plus water

There are many other combinations for this cake – try a white cake with your favorite berry flavored jell-o!
