    I make something very similar to this. But I make a white or yellow cake mix as directed on the box. Except I replace the eggs with egg beaters, and the oil with applesauce. The mix 1 packet of sugar free jello with just under 2 cups of water. Then frost with fat free cool whip. - 3/9/09

    This is better and has less fat if you use an angel food cake. It doesn't get mushy!! - 3/11/09

    I use low sugar cake mix, sugar free/fat free jello, applesauce for the oil and cool whip light. Still tastes wonderful - 3/12/09

    I've made this cake for years, except I use two different kinds of jello for holiday's such as cherry and lime. I pour one on top of the cake, then the next over that layer after I refrigerate it for about 20 minutes. Then I save some jello and mix with cool whip and put on top of the cake. mmmmm - 3/10/09

    I have made this cake on many occasions however I have used cherry jello and topped the cake with cherry pie filling. It looks very festive - have made it for work around Valentine's Day and it has become a favorite. - 3/9/09

    I haven't tried this one, but have had others. However, you could use Sugar Free Jello and they now have reduced sugar cake mix. This would cut carbs and calories even more. - 3/12/09

    In high school, I worked for a dietary department in a nursing home and we served a sugar free version of this at least once a week. I've tried it with virtually every flavor of jello, topped with whipped cream. It even tastes good blended, for those who have no teeth :) - 3/11/09

    My sister makes this too. She uses different color jello depending on occasion, and tops it with fat free cool whip. Also she uses applesauce instead of oil. It's wonderful, and the kids have no clue that it's not fattening. - 3/10/09

    I've always loved this cake. I usually make mine with lime jello and then add food coloring to the whipped cream to make it a little festive! Seeing this makes me want to go make one right now! - 3/9/09

    This could be made with sugar-free strawberry jello or any other sugar-free flavor and contain even fewer calories per serving. Fat free cool whip would also be an advantage to this sweet treat!! - 3/9/09

  • Your oil amount is off. There's no way 1 3/4 c of oil is needed. Otherwise good...it tastes like strawberry shortcake when you use strawberry jello. Go sugar-free. It tastes just like original! - 4/21/09

  • I was confused as to what size of box of Jello to use. I used the big ones and had way too much Jello. I used a moist white cake mix and it fell when it cooled. Too much moister I think. I did make a trifle out of it and that was good. Next time I will mix up a regular cake and use the small Jello. - 4/2/09

  • I use white Jiffy cake mix, egg sub., and applesauce for oil. For the Jell-o I use sugar-free. The Poke Cake is excellent without any frosting! - 3/17/09

  • There should be a negative star rating option... 28 grams of fat? Are you kidding me? And somehow this ended up being the featured recipe of the day. Amazing. - 3/17/09

  • I made this last night - I altered the recipe by using an Angel Food Cake mix, orange and raspberry sugar-free jello and fat free whipped topping. It was very yummy! Now, I just hope that I don't dig into it today before dessert time tonight! ;0) - 3/17/09
