Everyone will be green with envy when you serve our Zesty Lime Poke Cake. The trick to filling this popular style of cake is to use a handy wooden spoon, then get ready for the tasty raves!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package white cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 limes, zested, divided
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 8 drops yellow food color
  • 3 drops green food color
  • 1 (12-ounce) container whipped vanilla frosting
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs, and half of lime zest, until well mixed. Pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together condensed milk, whipping cream, lime juice, and yellow and green food colors, until well mixed.
  5. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes in cake every 1/2 inch. Pour lime filling slowly over top of cake, allowing holes to fill. Spread back and forth with spatula, if necessary. (Some may stay on top of cake.) Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  6. Mix remaining lime zest with vanilla frosting and frost top of chilled cake. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
