Cherry Limeade Cake
One of my most favorite of all treats is a Sonic Cherry Limeade. Oh how I love them. I have tried to replicate them at home with no luck. I just can't seem to get it just right. When I saw this recipe I just knew that I had to give it a try. I adapted it from a Betty Crocker recipe and added a little extra lime juice to make it extra lime-y. Is that a word? Well, it is now. I was so pleased with this recipe! It's a definite new family favorite!
1 box white cake mix
1 1/4 cups lemon-lime soda
2 t lime juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 egg whites
1 T + 1 t grated lime peel, divided
1 box (4 serving sz) Cherry Flavored Jello
1 cup boiling water
1 container Whipped Fluffy White Frosting
1 jar maraschino cherries
In large bowl, mix cake mix, soda, lime juice, oil, egg whites and 1 tablespoon grated lime peel with beater on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes.
Pour into a greased 13x9 pan. Bake at 350 as directed. Cool for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir gelatin into boiling water, stirring for 2 minutes to completely dissolve gelatin.
Poke cake every inch with tines of meat fork or table knife.
Pour cherry mixture slowly over cake, allowing mixture to fill holes in cake. Cool completely, about 1 hour longer.
In small bowl, mix frosting and 1 teaspoon grated lime peel.
Spread evenly over cake.
Top each serving with a cherry and a lime twist.
Check out all that yummy. It tastes even better than it looks. Just like a Sonic Cherry Limeade. Perfection!
