Happy Independence Day! If you are heading out to celebrate today and need to whip up a festive dessert this is it. Try our 4th of July easy poke cake recipe. It’s a crowd pleaser.
1 Duncan Hines White Cake Mix
1 box 3 oz Strawberry Jell-O Mix
1 cup Boiling Water
1/2 cup Cold Water
8 oz Frozen Cool Whip (thawed)
1-quart Strawberries (thinly sliced)
Let’s make a cake! If you don’t want to bring your personal baking dish, we suggest buying Reynolds non-stick baking wear 13×9 pan with lid. No preparation and it can be thrown away after the cake is devoured.
Start off by making your white cake mix as directed on the box. Be sure to only use egg whites. Bake and let cool for 20 minutes.
Mix Jell-O with boiling water in a large cup, then add the cold water and mix well. Grab a fork and poke holes all over your cooled cake, pour the Jell-O over top. Place cake in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Now it’s time to decorate! Evenly spread the Cool Whip over the top of the cake. To make your flag, start out by placing blueberries in the top left corner. We did 5 rows of 7 blueberries. Next overlap the strawberries for your red stripes. We did 4 rows. Refrigerate for one hour and serve.
So moist and delicious! This will surely be a crowd pleaser. We found this recipe Cincy Shopper.
