This lemon jello cake is a light and refreshing quick summer cake that is perfect to bring to a cookout or potluck! Delicious hot or chilled, this cake is perfectly citrusy, sweet, fluffy, and moist. It’s so simple that anyone can throw it together in no time.
I was flipping through my grandma’s recipe box when I came across a handwritten recipe for this lemon jello poke cake. I always get excited when I come across a handwritten recipe. When was the last time someone made this recipe? Is it any good? How old is the recipe? It’s a mystery all around. But I couldn’t resist giving this one a try!
It’s a sheet cake, and I think sheet cakes are really underrated these days. Sometimes there’s something so beautiful in a simple cake, especially if you don’t have time to whip up an extravagant multi-tiered cake. I’m all about the simple things.
And if this cake is anything, it’s simple. A box of yellow cake, lemon jello, eggs, oil, and water. I used one whisk and one bowl, and didn’t even have to get the hand or stand mixer out. It took no time to throw together and it came out beautifully. Grandma truly does know best.
