Summer brings more berries – and with it, more baking with berries! I’m very pleased about the arrival of summer for many reasons, and one is because I’ve been craving summertime desserts and cakes all winter long. Almost every week I’m scouring the farmers market, hoping for the freshest homegrown berries – and right now, all the strawberries!
This Strawberry Jello Poke Cake is the perfect summertime indulgence, because it’s cool and light – and the sweetness comes from the berries. Plus, it’s a very simple recipe, one made with a box cake mix. These are the recipes I adore most, because it takes no time at all to make.
Strawberry Jello Poke Cake take few ingredients, and is a great one to enjoy at home or take along to potlucks and barbecues. The look and taste are true symbols of summer – and if you want to make this right away – it’s a great red and white Canada Day dessert!
Poke cakes are so pretty, and such an easy way fancy up the look of ordinary cake. Just like this Pumpkin Spice Poke Cake!
