Banana Pudding Poke Cake [ Video ]

Friday, May 3, 2013

This cake has been going all around the internet but its nothing new for my family. My grandmother use to make these for church all the time. She would switch out the cake mix and pudding and change the crumb topping and she would have a totally new cake! These cakes are gooey and delicious! 

Here's the video.. pictures and more info below! 

Click on the link below to see the pictures and instructions...

You just need 1 box of yellow cake mix. ( bake as directed )

2 boxes of instant banana cream pudding ( make as directed )

1 12 oz container of Cool Whip ( thawed )

About ½ box of Vanilla Wafer Cookies ( crushed )

Bake the cake as directed.

Poke holes in the cake with a  the end of a wooden spoon ( or something simliar ) while its warm. You want the holes to be big so the pudding can get down in the cake. 

Pour the pudding over the cake. Smooth it over and then top with the entire container of coolwhip 

Sprinkle the top with crushed wafers. 

Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours. 

BTW.. you could make this like a boston cream pie if you put some chocolate icing/glaze on top of the pudding and then the do the whip cream and cookies. 

Top with sliced bananas right before serving and enjoy! 

Let me know if you try this yummy cake!

  1. This looks so yummy, I definately think I will have to try it out. The only thing is I am the only one who eats bananas in my house, so I would end up eating it all myself!! lol Hugs, Jen :-) x
