It was Jello's famous easy-to-make home recipe of the 70s. It came out in 1977. You make a cake either from scratch or one of the cake mixes, bake it in the oven. As soon as it's ready you take it out, poke a rows of holes all over the cake with the end of the wood spoon, mix Jello pie filling and pudding mix in chocolate flavour, pour it all over the cake, then use the rest of the pudding mix for cake icing and chill it in the fridge.

This "Stripe It Rich Cake" recipe was printed on the back of a Jello box a long time ago Stripe It Rich Cake 1 cake mix (flavor of your choice) 2 boxes Jello-O Pudding Mix (NOT instant---flavor of your choice) 1 cup powdered sugar 4 cups milk 2 tablespoons butter 1. Make cake as directed on cake mix box using 9x13 pan. 2. When cake is done, remove from oven and immediately punch holes in cake with the handle of a wooden spoon. Set cake aside. 3. In medium saucepan combine powdered sugar and pudding mixes. Whisk in milk. Add butter. 4. Cook pudding and powdered sugar mixture, stirring constantly, over medium heat until mixture comes to full, rolling boil. 5. Pour evenly and slowly over the entire cake allowing it to run into the holes. It will level off, frosting the cake as well. 6. Chill at least two hours. 7. Serve with Cool Whip. (The original recipe calls for whipped cream.) 8. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

We did a Fourth of July Stripe it Rich cake, white cake with blue jello, red jello and vanilla pudding, covered with whipped cream. Kinda funky tasting.....

This was a favorite at my house. We'd make like, one a week. Sometimes we'd do the jello too, but the pudding was a lot better.

This has been my son's favorite birthday cake recipe and I have made him one every year since 1977. I have made it with other flavors of pudding but his favorite is chocolate.
