I found this recipe when I was trying to replicate the cake that our chorale conductor used to bring every year to the first day of practice. It was a very moist (sorry Sarah) lemon lime cake that was bright green and absolutely delicious. I think we tried to ask him about it one year, but I don't think we ever got a recipe out of him...
So, I tried this recipe with lemon cake mix and lime jello and.... eureka!! It may not be exact, but it's good enough for me. Brian and I love these cakes and they are perfect for summer get togethers since they are served cold.
The combos we've tried to date are:
- lemon cake/lime jello
- yellow cake/strawberry jello
- yellow cake/orange jello
You can also make it with sugar free jello, cool whip free and I just noticed they now have reduced sugar cake mixes @ the grocery store now (although I can't vouch for them myself) if you want to try to make it less evil for you.
