Lemon Lime Cake

Over the weekend I wanted to make a dessert.  I’m not a baker at all.  I’m trying to get more into baking slowly.   My Mom has made so many yummy desserts, cookies and candies over the years and I’m trying to take after her a little bit.  I felt like something sweet this weekend and I decided to make this super easy cake.  I mean it’s very simple.  I figured I’d start with baby steps.  My Mom got this recipe from my Aunt and has been making it for 30+ years.  It’s very light and refreshing and great for the summer.  It’s  not usually something I’d make in September but with this heat wave it was perfect.  This is very similar to a poke cake.  If you like lemon and lime and a simple cake recipe you’ll love this.  It’s very delicious.  Check out the recipe below.

Lemon Lime Cake

Ingredients:
1 package lemon supreme cake
2 packages lime jello
2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1 package of instant lemon pudding
5 oz cool whip (little more then half of cool whip container)

Directions: Bake cake according to directions on the box.  In a bowl mix 2 packages of lime jello, 2 cups boiling water, 1/2 cup cold water, mix together.  Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.  Remove cake from the oven and let cool at least 20 minutes.  Poke holes all over the cake.  Don’t forget the edges.  Pour the lime jello over the top of the cake evenly so the jello mixture gets into the holes.  To make the topping add 1 1/2 cups cold milk, 1 package of instant lemon pudding and cool whip. Mix well till incorporated.  Spread topping over the top of cake and refrigerate for 4 hours before first serving.  Its best the longer it sets.  Note: If you it eat it too soon the cake will be rather wet let it sit longer.
