  • 1 Notta Lotta Sugar Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 Package (.3 oz.) JELL-O Sugar-Free Strawberry
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 3 Whole Eggs or 3 Large Egg Whites
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • 1/2 Cup Cold Water
  • 1 (8 oz.) Tub Cool Whip Lite or Sugar-Free Cool Whip
  • Fresh Strawberries or Fruit


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine Notta Lotta Sugar Yellow Cake Mix, eggs, 1 cup water, and unsweetened applesauce. Whisk until well combined.
  3. Pour batter into prepared 9×13 baking dish. 
  4. Cook for 22-25 minutes. 
    Remove from oven and let cool 15 minutes on the counter.  Poke the entire cake all over to create small holes (The end of a chopstick or small wooden spoon works well).
  5. In a small mixing bowl combine JELL-O and boiling water. Stir until JELL-O is completely dissolved. 
  6. Add cold water. Stir until well combined. Pour JELL-O over the cake slowly ensuring it gets in all of the holes. Cover with plastic wrap or foil.
  7. Place in the fridge for at least 3 hours or until the JELL-O sets. The longer it chills the better-overnight is best.
  8. Remove from fridge and spread cool whip over the top of the chilled cake.
  9. Garnish with fresh strawberries or fruit! Enjoy!
