Perusing the soda aisle for some Ginger Ale at Jewel last week, I noticed a few cases of Big Red. I haven't seen "America's #1 Red Soda" in years -- not that I've been missing it. When I went back to snap a photo last night, it was sold out! Apparently there are those who were longing for it.
Or maybe they were hoping to make some Big Red Cake.
Having spent part of my childhood in a small town outside of San Antonio, I have vivid memories of this ridiculous cake. Those memories aren't good memories, so I give you this recipe with a warning and a disclaimer. The warning: You probably will hate this cake. The disclaimer: Did you notice the lack of "real" ingredients? You risk shaving years off your life consuming this cake. Drive Thru is not responsible for that.
BIG RED CAKE
1 box yellow cake mix
2 sm. boxes vanilla instant pudding
2 sm. boxes cherry gelatin
1 can Big Red soda
1 (8 oz.) tub whipped topping.
Bake in 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake cake according to box directions. Remove from oven and poke holes in it with a toothpick. Immediately pour mixture of gelatin, 1/2 cup hot water and 1/2 cup Big Red over top. Cool. When completely cool top with mixture of Cool Whip and pudding mixed according to box directions.
