Banana Pudding Poke Cake
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 pkgs instant banana pudding
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 8 oz tub whipped topping
  • 1 box vanilla wafers (about 20 wafers)
  • 1 banana(s)
  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions for a 9x13 cake.
  2. Once cake comes out of the oven, allow it to cool slightly. With a wooden spoon handle poke rows of holes in the cake.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together instant pudding with 4 cups milk. Stir until all the lumps are gone. Let pudding sit 2 minutes so it has just slightly begun to thicken but not fully set.
  4. Pour pudding over cake. Spread it all out and using the back of the spoon gently push pudding down into the holes.
  5. Put the cake into the fridge to set and cool. Once it's completely cooled, spread on whipped topping.
  6. Crush the vanilla wafers (about 20) by putting them in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin or some other hard object. Sprinkle crushed wafers onto the top of the cake.
  7. Serve with a couple of banana slices on top of each cut slice. Keep refrigerated.
