More than 81 Million Americans will celebrate the day with a barbeque or back yard party. We hope your menu will include lots of traditional hot dogs, hamburgers and watermelon, as well as a variety of K-cup coffees from One Cup Connection. Here’s a simple festive dessert recipe that’s sure to complement whatever flavor of k-cup coffee you like best:
INDEPENDENCE DAY POKE CAKE
1 pkg white cake mix
1 (3 oz.) pkg cherry flavored gelatin mix
1 cup boiling water
1 (21 oz.) can cherry pie filling
Home made whipped cream topping
Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions for a 9 x 13 cake pan. After removing cake from oven, poke holes through it using a long pronged fork. Holes should be spaced at approximately 1” intervals.
While the cake cools, combine gelatin with boiling water and pour the mixture over the cake. Top with cherry pie filling and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. Just prior to serving, top cake with home made whipped cream or use a 16-oz container of frozen whipped topping, thawed. Sprinkle fresh blueberries over the topping or serve on the side.
Wishing all our friends and customers a fun-filled 4th!
