It seems like it's been a month full of lots of opportunities to try out some of my new recipes that I've been gathering. Last night we went to another dinner party with two couples from our married CG. I was in charge of dessert. I made my favorite twist to a plain cake mix. It's REALLY easy and quick:
--cake mix (and whatever ingredients the box says you need)
--box of Jell-O, any flavor (the 4-serving size box)
1. Make cake as described on box. Let it cool completely.
2. When cooled, poke holes all over cake with a fork.
3. Make Jell-O as described on box, and pour it over cake...allowing it to soak into all the holes.
4. Ice the cake with the cool whip.
5. Refrigerate a few hours.
Last night I used a french vanilla cake mix, strawberry Jell-O and topped it off with a strawberry flavored Cool Whip. A fun twist to the usual strawberry shortcake recipe. Yum!
