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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs, and half of lime zest, until well mixed. Pour into prepared baking dish.
- Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together condensed milk, whipping cream, lime juice, and yellow and green food colors, until well mixed.
- 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.
- Mix remaining lime zest with vanilla frosting and frost top of chilled cake. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
For a beautiful presentation, top this off with some fresh lime slices and raspberries.
