I use to have a recipe for this cake, using a white/yellow cake mix, baked, holes poked and jello poured over top of warm cake, but instead of just putting Cool Whip on top like I'm seeing all of the net, it had a recipe that used instant pudding mix, a package of Dream Whip and milk. Does anyone have this recipe? I'd appreciate having a copy. Thanks.

Think this is what you are wanting - Dream Whip came along before Cool Whip and was a staple in my pantry.

I always top the cake with a layer of lemon pudding and then a layer of cool whip.

OMG! This threw me back to my childhood.... I grew up loving this quick and simple cake that Mama always made!!
Okay... with that memory in forefront I'd lake to share:
When I was nine yrs old, Mama was expecting her fifth child, twas summertime 1953 when she decided for getting us all in for supper - to call the first four of us by the initial of our name, (as a joke) to simplify calling us in for dinner from play (this was 1953 - when kids played outdoors, ya kno ;) We four were James, Elizabeth Louise, Larry....at this time it occurred to her that the new baby would have a name beginning with "O". And, when she wanted us all inside simultaneously she could just call out the door "J.E.L.L.O. dinnertime" which should bring us all in for supper :) it carried thru our family and we sometimes were referred to as the JELLO kids :) I being nine at the time was so thrilled that the baby was a girl, she has a beautiful name, "Olyvia" :) tks for listenin'
