How to Make a Lemon Strawberry Poke Cake
For this recipe, you’ll use a boxed cake mix, which you add dry strawberry jello mix to. You’ll add the other usual ingredients too — such as eggs and oil. Then, bake the cake as usual.
After your strawberry poke cake is done baking, you’ll poke holes in the cake with the top end of a wooden kitchen spoon (or similar cooking utensil). With a bunch of holes all over your cake, you’ll then use the refreshing lemon pudding to fill all the holes on the cake.
With the lemon pudding mixture filling the holes, each piece of cake gets a delicious combination of strawberry and lemon. A perfect summer cake!
To finish off the cake, the remaining cream cheese lemon pudding mixture is spread on top of the cake. Then, this is followed by a layer of whipped topping. Before garnishing, place your cake in the refrigerator to set for at least 4 hours.
Before serving, top with some strawberries. Then, cut into pieces for serving.
Garnish the top of your cake with strawberries and it’s ready to serve!Print
