Raspberry Dream Poke Cake

I am totally drooling over this raspberry poke cake! I am definitely making this, looks soooo good!

No joke, this cake was so popular around here that people were looking for not only seconds, but thirds! And this poke cake was so easy to make, and can be adapted for several different flavors, you’ll definitely want to add it to your dessert armory. I happen to love raspberry, but other flavors that would rock with this are lemon, blackberry and cherry. I’m sure you can find others too!

Wow, this raspberry poke cake looks amazing! I wish I had a slice right now, definitely making this!

I love to bake, no secret about that. But I also love to save time. For very special occasions I try to use one of my from-scratch cakes, like when the cake is center stage. But I always have boxed cake mixes in my pantry and look for them to go on sale so I can stock up. They are especially wonderful when you need something fast and don’t have time for all the fuss of a from scratch cake, as fun as that may be for someone like me! :)

NOTE: The full ingredient list and instructions are at the end of this post. For a printable version, click the printer icon on the recipe.

This cake uses a boxes white cake mix, some Jell-O, whipped topping and pie filling. It’s nothing short of amazing. I promise.


After you bake the cake, use a serving spoon to poke holes in it

Bake the white cake according to the package directions using a 13×9 pan. Remove from oven and cool for ten minutes. Use a serving fork to poke holes an inch or so apart all over the cake.

Pour the Jello over the holes in the top of the cake

Add the Jell-O to the boiling water and stir until dissolved. Slowly pour it over the cake. The rest is refrigeration and topping. Delicious!
