Refreshing Lemon-Lime Jello Cake
Somewhere along the line, my mom started making a lemon-lime Jello cake every year for my Grams' birthday. Eventually I took over the tradition. And every year, my Grams would make the same speech about what a light and refreshing cake it was for Summer. She was right.
Now that my Grams is no longer with us, I still like to do a little something to remember her on her birthday, so I have continued to bake her favorite cake. I know she'd get a big kick out of that.
* 1 pkg. lemon cake mix
* 1 large pkg. lime Jello
* 1 small pkg. instant lemon pudding mix
* 1 envelope Dream Whip
* 1 1/2 cups cold milk
Dissolve Jello in 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Add 1 cup cold water. Stir and set aside to cool.
Bake the lemon cake in a 13x9" pan. Cool completely before using a knife or large fork to poke holes all over the cake. I usually poke my holes in rows. It makes for a pretty design once you cut the cake. Carefully pour the Jello mixture evenly over the cake. Refrigerate while making the frosting.
Frosting: In a chilled bowl, beat together one package of Dream Whip, the box of lemon pudding, and 1 1/2 cups cold milk. Spread over cake, then refrigerate.
I hope you enjoy it as much as she did.
Happy birthday to a very special lady. Hoping she's having a little slice of cake in heaven tonight.
