Lemon Lime Poke Cake
This is an old recipe that’s been around for ages. When the kids were little my sister in law Sandy would make this delicious cake and bring it to family picnics. This is a very refreshing cake, perfect for the hot summer months. But don’t wait until then to make it, it would be just as nice as a St Patrick’s Day or Easter dessert.

These cakes are so much fun to make. You can use many different combinations. One of my husband’s favorites is chocolate cake with black cherry jello and topped with chocolate pudding mixed with dream whip.
Thank you Beth
With this crazy world today and not venturing out much, I’m trying not to make too many desserts. But I love your emails each morning and fantasize what your amazing recipes would taste like. However, I’m breaking down and will be making this or your pineapple cake for the holiday weekend. I love ruminating over this dilemma! Thank you!
Karen you won’t be disappointed in either cake if you make it for the 4th of July. I love the fact that you picked two cakes that will give you to totally different flavors, and you’ll love both. Make one for the 4th and one for Labor day sweetie then you’ll get to know each cake and be able to share. Come back and tell me what you think when you make one, I always love to hear. Stay healthy!
