"Jello Cake" is an old family favorite of ours. My mother has been making it since the 70s. My sister's kids (13 & 9) would rather have this than 'regular' cake. We make it with two layers and two Jello flavors, adding only 1 cup of hot water to the Jello.
I have been married almost 3 years and I made this cake while staying at my mother-in-law's house. In my culture, impressing "la Suegra" (The Mother-in-law) by cooking something is a BIG, BIG, BIG deal. Needless to say this cake was a HIT not only with her but my hubby's grandparents as well. Oh and my hubby loved it too!!!!!!!! Now I make it at least 1 time a month.
I used sugar-free strawberry Jell-o and Cool Whip Lite. It was great! Co-workers commented on how moist the cake was.
made 2 for memorial day use red for one and blue for the other, guest loved it cool and light!
I used white cake with strawberry Cool Whip and strawberry jello and white cake and French vanilla Cool Whip with black cherry. Both were great combinations!!
This is a yummy, easy dessert and tastes so delightful! I tried it first at a work potluck and this cake was gone first. Now I make it for my family and everyone just loves it and looks forward to the next time we make it. Happy cooking!
I love this with white cake, Rasberry Jell-o and coconut on top....tastes like a rasberry zinger cake. I make it all the time for carry ins....never any left.
This was very easy and very good. It was a hit at my house. My family loved it.
I made mine with white cake mix, orange jello, and added 1 box instant banana pudding mix to the cool whip then frosted. Not a piece left after our carry-in.
The cake is good except the kids did not like the suggested berry blue Jello-flaved it gives your cake a little sour taste, next time I will use strawberry flavor a bit more sweet.
