Banana Pudding Poke Cake

Oh my goodness!!!!  You can literally inhale this cake, it’s so good.  I just love poke cakes because they are so quick and easy to make.  And I love banana pudding.

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. instant banana pudding
  • 1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding
  • 4 cups whole milk, divided
  • 2 large bananas, sliced thick
  • 1 (8-oz.) tub Cool Whip, thawed
  • 15-20 vanilla wafers, crushed

Prepare cake mix according to package directions for a 9 x 13 cake.  Once cake comes out of oven, allow it to cool until it’s just warm to the touch.  Then, with a wooden spoon handle, poke holes in the cake.  You want the holes to be BIG so the pudding will go down into them.

In a bowl, whisk together banana pudding with 2 cups milk.  Stir until all the lumps are gone.  Pour pudding over cake making sure you get the holes filled, gently pushing the pudding into the holes and then spread rest over the top of cake.

In another bowl, whisk vanilla pudding with 2 cups milk.  Stir until all the lumps are gone.  Add sliced bananas to pudding and mix gently.  Spread over top of cake.

Put cake into the fridge to set and cool (about 2 hours).  Once cake has cooled, spread on Cool Whip.  Top with crushed vanilla wafers.  (I put my vanilla wafers into a ziploc bag and crushed them with a rolling pin.)  Leave some bigger pieces for a little bit of crunch when you eat the cake.

(I couldn’t wait, I put my Cool Whip on before I put it in the fridge to cool, and it came out just fine)

Serves 12 to 15.
