Banana Pudding Poke Cake

Oh my goodness, this banana pudding poke cake recipe is ALL over the internet, and now that I’ve made it, I can certainly see why!

It was sweet, rich and cool, and we enjoyed it very much, especially my husband who
is really fond of banana pudding!
The recipe is simple and yet looks fancy when you’re all done.

Here is what you need:
1 yellow cake mix
2 boxes instant banana pudding (3.4 oz. size)
4 cups milk
1 container cool whip (8 oz. size)
Vanilla wafers (1 to 2 cups)
Bananas (optional)

Make and bake the cake according to the directions on the box.

After the cake has cooled, use a wooden spoon handle (or other similar size utensil), and poke holes all over the cake down to the bottom.

Then mix the pudding powder with the milk, and pour over the cake, using a spoon to work it gently down into the holes.

Chill in the fridge for at least a couple of hours.  Then spread the whipped topping over the pudding layer and chill again if desired (although I skipped this step).

Crush your vanilla wafers in a ziploc bag. Now some people spread the crumbles all over the cake, but since I knew we wouldn’t be eating the cake all at once, I didn’t want the cookie crumbles to get soggy, so I only put them on as I served individual pieces, and I did the same with the banana slices so they wouldn’t get all yucky and brown.

    Thanks I try the cake it was all that you said it would be, Thanks from sharing it, But I did something different, I put dice banana on top of the pudding and then topped it off with the whipped cream, and like someone started before I didn’t put the cookie on top until I served it, It was GREAT. Thanks

    I followed your instructions but changed it to chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, and chocolate graham cracker crumbs. Yum! Thank you for sharing!

    would have been nice to say cook pudding as directed with milk, instead of just prepare with milk. That was a waste…..

  7. Tabitha says

    I see bananas are optional.But if I want to put them on when should I ??? Do I put on top of pudding mix when I put in the frig ??

  8. martha says

    I made this only i used vanilla pudding because i don’t like banana pudding. I put the bananas on top of the pudding. It was a big hit in my house.
