Has anyone ever used dry jello in a cake mix to add flavor and color? Any suggestions and advice would help. I don't even know if it's possible but I'd like to try it. In the past I have done a "poke" cake with jello, but that's not what I am looking for. Thanks in advance!
If I were to try it on my own, I'd probably use one of those recipes & change the mixes/jellos to another flavor.
If you don't have the book, you can check it out from the library or purchase it at any bookstores.
There is no other change to ingredients or how you mix the cake -- just add the dry gelatin mix.
An interesting side note is the reproduction of an ad with this recipe, from 1951!
I have used instant pudding thanks to the following recipe from prterrell on this forum. For St Patrick's Day I always make a green colored cake and I am planning on using a French Vanilla cake mix with pistacio (spell?) pudding.
1 Box Cake Mix
1 box (4 serving size) regular (not sugar free) instant pudding mix
Number of eggs called for on cake box + 1
Double the amount of oil called for on cake box
1 cup water (use lemonade if making a lemon cake)
Beat the eggs to mix together the whites and yolks
Slowly beat in the oil
Mix in the pudding mix
Add 1/2 of the cake mix and 1/2 of the water, mix until combined
Add rest of cake mix and rest of water, mix until combined
Beat on high for 3 minutes
Bake at 350 degrees, may take 45 to 50 minutes to bake, depending on size of pan, start checking for doneness at 30 minutes.
The above amounts will make 1 quarter sheet (9x13) or 1 two or three layer 8" or 9" round cake.
