First, prepare a regular cake mix and bake it according to the directions. (We usually use a white cake mix in a 9×13 pan.) Just before it’s done baking, dissolve one 3 oz. package of jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Then stir in just 1/2 cup of cold water.
As Wayne and the kids were preparing dinner on Mother’s Day, someone asked what was for dessert. I said there was ice cream in the freezer if they wanted. However, Steven immediately volunteered to make Jello Cake instead. And he did. Jeff reminded us that he made it last year as well, and David made it often on his mission. It’s a great, easy dessert.
