My granny was pretty famous for her Jello Pudding Poke Cakes. So famous, in fact, that my aunt now gets requests to make the cake for people! I don't remember EVER having it before. I am sure I did, someone can't be famous for something and their children/grandchildren not try it! Right?
A quick search on Pinterest turned up so many different poke cake recipes that you could fix one a day for a year and still have recipes left! I just used what I had on hand, yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding.
Jello Pudding Poke Cake
1 pkg Cake Mix - any flavor
2 - 3oz pkgs Instant Pudding Mix - any flavor
4 Cups Cold Milk
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Tub Cool Whip Topping - optional
Prepare cake as directed on package in a 13x9 inch pan.
Remove from oven and immediately poke holes into cake (I used the handle of a wooden spoon) 1 inch apart.
Combine Pudding Mix and Sugar in large bowl, gradually stir in Milk.
Beat on low for 1 minute with a mixer.
Pour half of mixture over warm cake.
Allow remaining pudding mixture to thicken slightly, then spoon over cake.
You can stop at this point and store in the refrigerator or, you can top with Cool Whip.
Store in refrigerator.
That's it! Super duper easy and SO good!
Have you had poke cake before? What are your favorite flavor combinations? I am thinking I need to make a cookies and cream version soon!
Ok! Time to check in again! How are you doing on the #HomemadeChallenge?
Last week was our spring break, everything was more semi-homemade than homemade. Eh. There is always this week. ;-) Did you make anything home/handmade last week?
