Poke Cake

Here's fun summer treat to make with your kids or to take to your next get-together or barbecue.
Poke Cake
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup oil
1 1/2 cups sour milk or buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Turn on oven to 350 degrees F.  Sift together dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Add wet ingredients.  Mix until batter is smooth.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool completely.

6 oz Flavored Gelatin (also known as Jell-o) {1 lg box or 2 small boxes 3 oz each}
2 cups boiling water

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water.  Any flavor will do.  Poke cooled cake with a skewer, fork, chopstick, whatever you have on hand.  Be sure to poke the cake all over.  Pour gelatin over the cake.  Put into the refrigerator until gelatin is set.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.  A fun cool treat for a hot summer's day. ~Lena
