Lemon Jello Poke Cake

The cake is super moist. The flavor was the perfect combination of sweet and tangy… I really liked having a lighter option for dessert. 


  • 3-ounce package lemon Jello
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Whipped cream and extra powdered sugar for topping (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix Jello and water; cool.
  3. Mix oil and cake mix.
  4. Add eggs to the mix, one at a time.
  5. Add the cooled Jello and mix.
  6. Spread in greased 9 x 13-inch pan.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 27-30 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes, then add the glaze.
  9. Allow cake to cool completely before cutting.


  1. Mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
  2. Using a toothpick or fork, poke holes in the top of cake; pour glaze over top and sides.

Sprinkle on some extra powdered sugar and top with a dollop of whipped cream (optional) before serving.
