How to Make Jello Crazy Cake


  • 1Mix cake mix, jello, eggs, oil & water with mixer. Pour into greased/floured 9 x 13 pan. Bake 35 min. @ 350 degrees.
  • 2After removing cake from overn, cool slightly and pour "runny" frosting all over the cake, slowly so it doesn't just run to the sides of the cake.
  • 3VARIATIONS: This recipe can be changed to any combo of cake mix & jello you like. I have made a lemon cake mix with lime jello... strawberry or white cake mix with strawberry/banana jello.... chocolate cake mix with cherry jello.... white or orange cake mix with orange or orange/pineapple jello.... Play with it and have fun!!!!!!! Flavor the frosting with anything to go with the combo you have done.... :)
  • 4This wasn't part of the original recipe, but about 5 minutes after I get it out of the oven, I poke multiple holes with a dinner fork, then as I'm pouring the frosting down the center I use the fork to direct the frosting all over the cake... looks like a glaze... I continue in this manner until the bowl of frosting is gone... the cake will have a glossy look to it....
