Strawberry 7-Up Cake

Make an easy cake with a strawberry cake mix and lemon-lime soda, and make it extra moist by making it a poke cake with strawberry jello! Slice strawberries and whipped cream make it even more delicious.

  • 1

    (18 ounce) box strawberry cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines)

  • 3


  • ¼

    cup cooking oil (not olive oil)

  • ¼

    cup water

  • 1

    cup carbonated lemon-lime beverage, drink (7-Up is best)


  • 1

    (3 ounce) box strawberry Jell-O

  • ¾

    cup boiling water

  • 2 to 3

    tablespoons sugar, or to taste

  • ¾

    cup cold water

  • 3 -4

    cups fresh sliced strawberries (or one 1-pound package frozen strawberries, drained very well)

  • Cool Whip Topping, thawed


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Mix all of the cake ingredients together in a bowl; beat well until smooth (about 3 minutes). Pour cake batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cake tests done. Cool, and invert (turn over) cake onto a tray large enough to hold the cake. To make the topping: Dissolve the jello powder completely in boiling water, with the sugar, then add in the COLD water; mix well. Poke holes all over cake with a straw. Drizzle the jello over entire top of cake. Place the strawberries slices evenly over and covering all the cake. Refrigerate cake for 2 or more hours. Just before serving, top cake with Cool Whip topping.
