ULTIMATE LEMON POKE CAKE

I have a serious soft spot for lemon desserts. My family isn’t as big a fan as me though. Every year for my birthday, I ask for a lemon cake. This Ultimate Lemon Poke Cake sure hits the spot. It’s not only simple to make but it is always a hit with fellow lemon lovers like me.

CAN I USE OTHER FLAVORS FOR POKE CAKES?

Absolutely! The combinations are fun and endless. This recipe is similar to the one I use for my STRAWBERRY JELL-O POKE CUPCAKES. That recipe is just a white cake mix with strawberry jell-o. Or, in this recipe, you could substitute the lemon cake mix with a white or yellow cake mix and switch up the different jell-o flavors. A red, white and blue one would be perfect for your 4th of July celebrations!Ultimate Lemon Poke Cake recipe from The Country Cook
