Ingridiens for Banana Pudding Poke Cake

Steps to make Banana Pudding Poke Cake


Preheat oven and prepare baking pan


Preheat the oven to 350 ºF and grease and lightly flour a 9-x-13-inch cake baking pan.


Prepare yellow cake mix


In a mixing bowl, prepare 1 box of yellow cake mix according to the package instructions. Transfer to the prepared cake baking pan.




Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until cooked through and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes.


Prepare pudding


In a small mixing bowl, whisk 2 boxes of vanilla pudding with 3 cups of milk until thick and smooth.


Combine remaining ingredients


In a separate, large mixing bowl, beat 2 cups of heavy cream with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.


Poke holes


Use the handle to poke random holes all over the baked yellow cake.


Decorate cake


Pour the vanilla pudding mixture over the cake, letting it drip into the holes. Top with a layer of banana slices then a layer of whipped cream and finally decorate with wafer stickers, sprinkles of crushed wafers everywhere and a few more banana slices in between.
