This past weekend I made one of my hubby’s favorite desserts for Father’s Day. My mother-in-law was sweet enough to share the recipe with me years ago.
This is the perfect warm weather dessert… plus it’s simple and yummy!
lemon cake mix
small lime jell-o
small instant lemon pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
medium size cool whip
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.
