I posted this delicious 4th of July cake recipe, last year… on the 4th of July, a little too late for people to go out and buy the ingredients in time for their picnics.
This year, I’m getting it out there in plenty of time for people to actually try the recipe:
Incredibly Yummy 4th of July Poke Cake:
1 box (18.25 oz) white cake mix with pudding in the mix.

1/3 cup milk
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed.
1 cup fresh sliced strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1. Heat oven to 350. Prepare cake mix as directed on box using water, oil, and egg whites; bake in 13×9 inch pan. Cool completely.
