Description

An old Southern recipe passed down through my grandmother. You can vary the flavor of gelatin used in order to get a specific color for any holiday, e.g. lime for St. Patrick's day. You can top this cake with berries, sprinkles, or any topping of your choice.

Ingredients
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry-flavored gelatin mix (such as Jell-O®)
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • 1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping (such as Cool Whip®)
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. 2. Combine cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.
  3. 3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 24 to 29 minutes. Let cool completely, at least 30 minutes.
  4. 4. Pour cold water into a bowl. Sprinkle gelatin mix on top. Let stand until softened, about 1 minute. Add boiling water and stir constantly until granules are completely dissolved.
  5. 5. Poke holes all over the cake using a fork. Pour gelatin mix into the holes. Refrigerate cake until gelatin is set, up to 6 hours.
  6. 6. Spread whipped topping over cake.
