Banana Pudding Poke Cake
Trying a new recipe can be an exciting adventure or a daunting task. It can be scary trying something new, but as long as you follow the directions, this Banana Pudding Poke Cake is likely to be an enjoyable dessert. Remember, the most important thing in preparing a new recipe is to be sure you have everything on hand. The first step in making any recipe, is gathering all the supplies and ingredients. For this particular recipe, get together two bowls, one Ziploc bag, a rolling pin, a whisk, a wooden spoon, a set of measuring cups, and a nine-by-thirteen inch cake pan. Now, gather the ingredients for the cake. This recipe calls for one (ten ounce box) yellow cake mix, along with three eggs, one-third cup vegetable oil, and one cup water to prepare the cake mix. It also needs two (three-fourth ounce) instant banana pudding mixes, four cups milk, one (eight ounce) tub of whipped topping, and approximately twenty vanilla wafer cookies. Once all the ingredients are together, move onto the next step.
The second step in preparing Banana Pudding Poke Cake is to put the ingredients together. Combine the cake mix with the eggs, vegetable oil, and water. Pour the batter into the cake pan, and place it in a three hundred and fifty degree oven for thirty minutes. Once the cake is finished baking, let it cool for about thirty minutes. Next, take the handle of the wooden spoon and poke some fairly good size holes all throughout the cake making sure they reach to the bottom. Now, add the two boxes of pudding to the four cups of milk and stir with the whisk. Allow it to set halfway leaving it slightly runny. Pour the pudding all over the cake using the back of the wooden spoon to push the mixture into the holes you made. Finally, place the cake in the refrigerator, and let it cool for approximately two hours. After the cake has cooled, it is time to move on to the last step.
The last step is to complete the top of the cake. Count out twenty vanilla wafers, and place them in the Ziploc bag. Close the bag and use the rolling pin to crush them up, but be sure to leave a few big pieces for extra crunch. Next, take the cooled cake out of the refrigerator, and spread a thick layer of whipped topping onto the cake. Sprinkle the crushed vanilla wafers evenly over the top. The cake is now ready to be served. Finally, slice the cake up and serve it with some fresh banana slices on the side. This cake will last for seven days, so be sure to store any leftovers in the refrigerator. Banana Pudding Poke Cake has plenty of potential to become a family favorite as long as one takes care to follow the recipe carefully. By gathering the supplies and ingredients, preparing the main ingredients, and completing the final steps your family will have a tasty dessert waiting for them after dinner.
