Easy Strawberry Jello Poke Cake Recipe

With making this delicious Strawberry Jello Poke Cake and my recent Hawaiian Pineapple Poke Cake, I wished I hadn’t been so late hopping on the poke cake bandwagon. I guess I always thought they’d be complicated or something, but let me tell ya- I was wrong.

They’re so delicious and incredibly easy to make, and even the most beginner baker can make this strawberry jello poke cake with ease. It’s delicious and moist with double the strawberry jello, and so light and refreshing for summertime.

Plus, the possibilities really are endless with poke cakes, as you can swap our different cake mix flavors, jello and pudding flavors, and toppings for some incredibly delicious combinations. I’m thinking a lemon cake mix with this same recipe would taste incredible!

How to Make Strawberry Jello Poke Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 9×13 glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Prepare cake mix batter in a large mixing bowl according to package instructions and place in the oven as directed. Once cake has fully baked, remove from oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 1 hour. Using the end of a wooden spoon, gently poke holes evenly across the entire cake.
  2. Next mix together two 3 ounce boxes of strawberry jello mix with 1 1/2 cups (boiling) hot water. Stir until the jello has completely dissolved. Next add 1 cup of cold water and stir for 1 minute. Pour jello mixture evenly over the cake (as shown in photo above), then cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill for 2-4 hours. *If easier than pouring, use a large spoon to drop the jello mixture evenly across the cake.
  3. While cake is refrigerated, slice or dice strawberries and (if desired) add a teaspoon or two of sugar to sweeten them. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to decorate/serve.
  4. Remove cooled cake from the refrigerator and spread either homemade whipped topping or 1 8 ounce tub of cool whip on top with a spatula.
  5. Re-cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Top with your diced or sliced strawberries, slice, and enjoy!
