Countdown to Summer… Lemon Jell-O Cake

Sharing is caring!

Happy Father’s Day & welcome to the last week of the Countdown to Summer Party!

This week I’m sharing one of our favorite summer desserts…

Lemon Jell-O Cake.

This is the perfect warm weather dessert… plus it’s simple and yummy!

Ingredients needed:

lemon cake mix

oil

water

eggs

small lime jell-o

small instant lemon pudding

1 1/2 cups milk

medium size cool whip

Directions:

Make lemon cake as directed on the box and bake in a 9×13 pan.  While the cake starts to cool, start on the lime jell-o.  Combine the lime mix with 3/4 cup of boiling water and stir till dissolved.  Then add 1/2 cup cool water.

Take a wooden spoon or a large fork and poke holes in the top of your cake.  If you use the spoon, you want to use the handle of the spoon to make holes.  Then pour the lime jell-o over the top of the cake and it will seep into the holes you’ve made.  Cover and place in the fridge.

For the frosting… beat your lemon pudding mix and milk together until the pudding begins to thicken (a few minutes).  Dump the cool whip into the pudding and fold it into the pudding.  Refrigerator until you’re ready to serve the cake.

When ready to serve… spread your yummy, light frosting all over the cake.

So how are you getting ready for Summer???

This is an easy-link party, no link back is necessary.  The only requirement is that it is SUMMER RELATED… so inspire us with your summer décor, summer recipes, summer traditions… anything summer related!
