Banana Pudding Poke Cake


A holiday favorite

Few ingredients

Ingredients: – box of yellow cake mix plus ingredients needed for cake including eggs, oil, and water – instant banana pudding mix – instant vanilla pudding mix – milk – 3 bananas  – Cool Whip  – vanilla wafers

Directions: – Make the cake according to the directions on the box for a 9×13" pan. Allow the cake to cool completely. Then take the handle of a wooden spoon or a small dowel rod and poke holes all over the cake. Set aside.

In a large bowl, add milk, banana pudding, and vanilla pudding. Beat with a hand mixer just until the pudding starts to thicken. Immediately pour the pudding over the top of the cake and gently smooth it with the back of a spoon or spatula to help the pudding drip into the holes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.

– Remove and top the cake evenly with sliced bananas then cover with Cool Whip. Right before serving, sprinkle the crushed vanilla wafers over the top.
