Poke cakes have been around for so many years, and yet so many do not know what they are. This banana Poke cake will have you hooked, so easy and so delicious! I’m not a fan of pre-boxed, pre-mixed foods but this is one I just could not resist. As too what a poke cake is, just read this recipe and find out!
- 1/3 of a box of Vanilla wafers
- 2 boxes of instant banana cream pudding (3.4 oz)
- Cool whip (8oz)
- Yellow cake mix
Prepare the yellow cake mix and bake in a 9×13 cake pan.
Make the 2 boxes of pudding (using 4 cups of milk) making sure the lumps are gone
Once your cake has cooled for 5 minutes, use the end of a whisk or wooden spoon to poke holes in straight lines in the cake.
After 1-2 minutes, pour the pudding all over the top of the cake. Use a spatula and smooth it out so that the pudding falls into the holes. Spread evenly.
Put the cake in the refrigerator to completely cool for 30 minutes to an hour.
Spread cool whip over the whole cake.
Crush up the vanilla wafers in a baggie (we used a rolling pin) and pour over the cake when you are about to serve. If you do it prior, they won’t be as crunchy.
Top with fresh sliced banana pieces and serve!
