[ pokin' around ]

ARE YOU all familiar with poke cakes? I had heard of them but have never made one until today! I decided to try my variation of The Country Cook's Banana Pudding Poke Cake...


I don't tend to make many desserts anymore since I've had to change my diet but sometimes I want to surprise my guy with something yummy.

All you need is: a yellow cake mix, 2 boxes of instant banana pudding and some whipped topping.

{I decided to add 2 mashed bananas to my cake mix and I used sugar-free vanilla pudding since I couldn't find any banana pudding here in Dubai}.

Just bake your cake according to the box and after it has cooled for a few minutes, poke holes all over it...


Then mix up your pudding and pour all over it so it trickles down into the holes...


Spread the remaining pudding over top and refrigerate. Then add a layer of whipped topping {CoolWhip or real whipped cream}. You can top with some crushed vanilla wafers if you like.
Done!

I haven't made anything sweet in awhile. If I do - I can't keep myself away from it! A little treat now and again can't hurt though and we all love banana anything over here : )
Thanks for sharing xo Ashlyn

Sounds really delicious! I've had to change my diet too - not always fun, but mine could include this! Thanks for the recipe!

That looks so scrumptious! I am guessing it is really moist and delicious since the poked holes allow all the pudding to soak in. I would love to try this sometime.
