1 box (18.25oz.) white cake mix
Ingredients listed on box to prepare cake
1 box (3 oz.) raspberry flavored gelatin (Jello)
2 cups hot water
1 jar (10 oz.) raspberry preserves
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed
1 bag (7 oz.) shredded coconut
Bake the cake according to package directions using a 9×13-in. baking pan.
After the cake has baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Using the handle
end of a wooden spoon or a meat fork, poke cake every inch or so with the handle of wooden spoon
or tines of meat fork halfway into the cake. There is no set number of holes, but you want plenty of
places to fill. Mix the raspberry gelatin with 2 cups of hot water until dissolved. Pour the Jello evenly
over the cake, trying to fill the holes as much as you can.
In a small bowl, microwave the raspberry preserves until easy to spread, about 30 seconds. Pour
the preserves over the top of the cake and spread evenly. Top with Cool Whip. Sprinkle the
shredded coconut over the top. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
