Red White and Blue Poke Cake
Red, white and beautiful! A simple cake-mix cake becomes the hit of your Fourth of July gathering with just a few easy additions. It's cool and fresh and pleases everyone every time I make it.
NOTE: do not cover cake with a tight lid that might squish the cake like I did! LOL
It still tastes delish but was much prettier before I put a lid on for travel
What you need:
1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
1 box (4-serving size) Jell-O™ strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 box (4-serving size) white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
1/3 cup milk
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
How to make it:
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan).
Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool completely in pan, about 1 hour.
Pierce cooled cake with fork at 1/2-inch intervals. In medium bowl, stir gelatin and boiling water until dissolved. Stir in cold water. Carefully pour mixture over entire surface of cake. Refrigerate at least 3 hours until serving time.
In large bowl, mix pudding mix and milk until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spread over cake. Arrange strawberries and blueberries on top of cake to look like flag. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.
