Lime Poke Cake – An Easy Springtime Dessert!


  • One 9x13 white cake (from scratch or from a box mix, baked and cooled)
  • One small box lime Jell-O
  • One 8 oz. tub of whipped topping (thawed)
  • Sprinkles and lime slices for garnish (optional)


  1. Use the handle of a wooden spoon or a large drinking straw to poke holes over the entire surface of the cooled cake.
  2. Prepare Jell-o with 1 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water. (This is 1/2 cup less water than the directions on the box.)
  3. Pour Jell-o over the cake - making sure to get some in every hole and over the surface of the cake.
  4. Refrigerate overnight or at least three hours.
  5. Frost with whipped topping and add sprinkles and lime slices for garnish just before serving.
