Berry Jello Poke Cake
What I love most about this Jello Poke Cake is that it looks incredibly impressive, but it’s actually incredibly easy to make! Plan a little bit ahead of time when you make this one, as each component takes a little while to set. That said, when you’re finished, your cake will look like something that you could serve at a wedding!

Berry Jello Poke Cake Recipe
1 vanilla or white boxed cake mix 15.25 oz
1 package raspberry or strawberry Jell-O 3 oz
2 cups mixed berries, frozen
1 tub whipped topping, thawed
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp corn starch
Prepare the cake mix according to the box directions and bake in a 13×9 dish. Allow the cake to cool completely after it is baked.
With the large end of a chopstick or wooden skewers, poke holes in the cake that go down to the very bottom. Make sure to leave about an inch between each hole.
Prepare the Jell-O according to the box directions and let it cool completely on the counter, but don’t let it set. When it has cooled, but is still liquid, pour the Jell-O slowly over the cake, in the holes, letting the cake absorb the Jell-O. Refrigerate the cake for 2 hours.
In a small pot, combine the fruit and the sugar. Heat the fruit and sugar on medium/low heat until it dissolves and the fruit has broken down into a thick berry compote. Stir occasionally during this time.
In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice and cornstarch together until it has combined. Add it to the fruit. Stir this mixture until it thickens and allow it to cool completely.
When you are ready to serve the cake, remove it from the fridge. Spoon the whole tub of whipped topping onto the top of the cake and smooth it out.
For each piece of cake that you cut, spoon out a few tablespoons of your berry mixture to place on top. Serve and enjoy!
