  • 1 (15.25 oz) box lemon supreme cake mix
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 small box of lime jello gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup ice cold water
  • 8 oz tub cool whip, thawed
  • 1 small box of lemon instant pudding mix
  • zest of 1 lime


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9 x  13 baking dish with a nonstick cooking spray. Set it aside. Add the cake mix to a mixing bowl along with 1 cup of milk, 3 eggs, and 1 stick of melted butter. Mix together using an electric hand mixer for two minutes until nice and fluffy. Once done, pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly. Place it in the preheated 350 degrees F oven and bake for 21 to 26 minutes. After baking, poke holes all over the cake using a fork and set it aside.

Step 2

Pour 1 cup of boiling water and add 1 box of lime jello. Whisk until dissolved, then slowly stir in 1/2 cup of ice cold water. After this, pour it all over the cake and set aside. In another mixing bowl, combine an 8 oz tub of thawed Cool Whip and 1 small box of lemon instant pudding mix. Mix until combined, then spread it over the top of the cake. Zest a lime over for garnish and then put some slices. Place it in the fridge for two hours before serving.
