I’ve had Funfetti cake in the past, and also poke cakes, but bringing the two together is pure magic. If you’ve ever had a poke cake before, then you’ll know what I mean. The gelatin adds a special moisture to the cake that will make you want to keep eating it over and over. I also lightened up the cake to have far less fat and calories.

It all starts with the box of Funfetti cake mix, but rather than adding the oil and eggs that the box recipe calls for, I substituted them for a cup of vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt instead. The results are amazing. Actually, when I made this cake for my family I asked them to tell me if they could spot a difference, and they couldn’t. I told them the changes I made and they were surprised.

 

If you’ve never made a poke cake before, it’s pretty simple. Once the cake is baked, allow it some time to cool down. Once it’s almost cooled, holes get poked all throughout the cake. I used a box of strawberry sugar-free gelatin, but any sugar-free flavor would work. The liquid gelatin gets poured all over the cake, filling into the poked holes.

Then, the cake goes in the fridge for several hours (or overnight), until the gelatin sets up. Once it’s nearly thawed, sugar-free whipped topping gets spread over the top as frosting. This is a great cake for the summer because it’s light and fluffy.
