Jello Flavored Cake
(3 ounces) jello
Contributed to the echo by: Janice Norman Jello Flavored Cake In one mixing bowl sift 1-1/4 cups of the sugar, flour, baking powder and gelatin together. In another bowl, combine milk, oil and lemon extract.
Beat the liquids into the dry ingredients until batter is smooth.
Beat egg yolks in one at a time into the batter. Whip egg whites until stiff but not dry with 1/4 cup of sugar. Fold the egg whites lightly but thoroughly into the batter.
Grease ring pan with vegetable shortening and dust with flour. Spoon batter into pan and bake at 325 F. 40 to 50 minutes until cake springs to the touch. Turn out immediately onto a wire rack.
Decorate with a thin icing and trim with what ever you want.
Note: I used strawberry jello and extract and decorated after drizzling icing on top with fresh strawberries cut in half. I also have used orange jello. Decorate with candied orange slices. I also found that 40 minutes was too long to bake this cake in my oven.
