Five Different Jell-O Cakes

I love bundt cakes, don’t you? They're always so easy and look so pretty when done. But you can do more than that will Jell-O cakes.

Baking and cooking are two of my favorite things to do, and that's a good thing, as desserts are always a huge hit with my husband. I've made each of the recipes below many times. I hope you will enjoy them.

1. Luscious Raspberry Jell-O Bundt Cake


  • 1 large carton of ricotta cheese

  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1 small box of raspberry jello
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup of cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Spray bundt pan very well or it will stick. Bake at 350˚F.
  2. Mix together cheese, soda, eggs and yoghurt after mixing well, add oil and jello mix well. Add cake mix, cake flour mix until smooth.
  3. Pour into bundt pan bake for 65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out smooth.

My cake doesn't have frosting because my husband didn't want any on it.

You can do anything with this cake.

Pamela99 and Granny's House thanks for stopping by my hubpage. It is a good cake having trouble keeping my hands off of it. I bake for my husband then taste for me and that's usually it. Try to stay away from sugar. Not Easy.

Granny's House from Older and Hopefully Wiser Time on December 16, 2010:

That looks great. I am always looking for new recipes. Well done

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on December 16, 2010:
