Lime Poke Cake
Here’s your St. Patrick’s Day dessert. I served this for bridge with mint chocolate chip ice cream. Delicious and very pretty!
- 1 pkg. white cake mix
- 2 (3-oz.) pkg. lime gelatin
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 cup cold milk
- 1 (3.4-0z.) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 (8-oz.) carton whipped topping, thawed
- Green sprinkles
Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using a greased 13-in x 9-in baking dish. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in cold water and set aside.
With a wooden skewer, poke holes about 2 in. apart into cooled cake. Slowly pour gelatin over cake. Cover and refrigerate.
In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes (mixture will be thick). Fold in whipped topping. Spread over cooled cake. Decorate with sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
Makes 12-15 servings.
