My mother-in-law loves key lime pie. I wanted to make something different for her so I combined a key lime pie with a poke cake and this is what I came up with. She loved it. So we named it after her.

  • Combine cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 24 to 29 minutes.

  • Dissolve gelatin mix in boiling water. Add Key lime juice and mix well. Use a fork to poke holes all over the baked cake. Spoon gelatin-key lime mixture all over the cake. Refrigerate until completely cool.

  • Make topping by mixing sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, Key lime juice, and food coloring with an electric mixer until well combined. Cover cake with topping. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

I will make it again. Only one change on icing, I had some left over lime jello from cake so I used cool whip mixed with jello, refrigerated it to become stiff and then used that as icing. Easy Peazy Read More

I followed the recipe except the cake mix I had was a Betty Crocker Vanilla cake. My husband was skeptical when he found out what I was making, doesn't care for Key lime pie. Every time he has had a piece he can't stop raving about it. I had some left over topping and he ate that calling it pudding. Read More
