Did those two words just flash you back to a summer party when you were a kid?? NO?! Well, you didn't grow up in my family then. Jello cake hit the family circuit sometime in the mid 70s. It had a nice run and than the recipe was forgotten.
I made a Tres Leches cake and as I poked holes for that, JELLO cake popped into my head and I just had to make it. Here's your blast from the past tasty treat.
What you'll need:
White cake made according to directions
Small box of jello mixed according to directions
1 pint Whipping Cream
1 t Vanilla
1/2 C Powdered Sugar
OR you can go completely old school and use Cool Whip.
Make the cake according to directions in a 13x9 pan. Cool. Poke holes all over the top with a fork. Mix jello with water according to box and pour over the top of the cake.
