Strawberry Jello Poke Cake (Extra Fluffy) | September 18, 2023


This strawberry jello poke cake recipe is super versatile. Depending on the event you are hosting, you can switch out the flavor of jello. For the 4th of July, we like to do a red and blue jello mix. For birthday parties, we mix up several colors or use the person’s favorite flavors and colors. You can also top the jello cake with fruits for extra flavor and garnish.

What is a Jello Poke Cake?

Jello poke cake recipes are all-American, no-fuss desserts that have been around since the famous gelatin brand stepped onto the scene. It’s made with a sponge cake base (or sometimes a boxed white cake mix) and features swirls of strawberry gelatin and creamy whipped topping. It’s called a “poke” cake because after it’s baked it’s poked with holes all over the top and filled with jello liquid. This seeps into the rest of the cake, causing those beautiful, signature swirls!
