Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake

Yep, I have another strawberry dessert for you. We loved this Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake. We just can’t stop eating these delicious Florida strawberries! I decided to add a cheesecake layer to this poke cake. I still did a little of the traditional jello but used half of it in the creamy cheesecake layer.

Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake

To start you make your favorite white cake. I used a box mix and the egg white version. Then I made my jello and only used 1 cup of water in it. Half goes over the cake and  the other half into the cheesecake filling. When it comes out of the oven poke holes all over the top of the cake. Pour half of the jello over it then spread the cheesecake layer over that when cake has cooled.

Then I topped the cake with a tub of whipped topping and a quart of strawberries. Easy, peasy and so good!
