ISO Weird Jello Cake
Can anyone identify this cake that I ate at a workplace party in the 1970s: angelfood cake had been entirely saturated with orange jello. I have an occasion for something like this but have no idea whether that's all you do, or what. Does anyone recognize this?
Here's the way I make it. You can substitute lemon for another flavor, I've used lemon cake with lime jello and lemon pudding and also used all strawberry.I've also used orange cake, orange jello and vanilla pudding for the frosting. For someone who usually hates anything that isn't chocolate, this lemon cake is one of my favorites.
1 lemon cake mix
1 3oz. box lemon jello
1 cup boiling water
1 3 oz. package lemon instant pudding
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk
8 oz. cool whip (thawed)
Make cake according to package directions for a 9x13 sheet cake. Bake according to package and when you take it out of the oven poke lots of holes in top of cake with fork.
Make jello with only 1 cup of boiling water and pour over cake while still hot. Let cake cool completely. If in a hurry use the fridge.
Beat together cool whip, pudding mix, vanilla and milk. Pour mixture over cooled cake and refrigerate until serving.
