  • 1 (4.2-ounce) Oreo cookies ‘n creme instant pudding mix
  • 2¼ cups cold whole milk
  • 1 (14-ounce) container whipped fluffy white frosting

How To Make This Oreo Poke Cake Recipe

STEP ONE: Bake cake according to the package directions on the back of the box. Once the cake has finished baking, allow it to cool for 15 minutes.

STEP TWO: Using a wooden spoon handle, poke holes into the baked cake. Space the holes about 1 inch apart over the entire cake.

PRO TIP:

It’s best to make the holes in the cake while it is still slightly warm because as it cools, the crust on top of the cake will crumble more easily.

STEP THREE: Add the pudding mix to a medium bowl. Whisk in the cold milk, and continue to mix just until the pudding begins to thicken. 

PRO TIP:

When mixing the pudding, be sure to stop mixing as soon as the pudding begins to thicken. The thicker the pudding is, the harder it will be to pour into the holes of the cake.

STEP FOUR: Quickly spoon the pudding into the individual holes of the warm cake until they are filled. Once the holes are filled, spread the remaining pudding on top of the cake. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

PRO TIP:

A candy drizzling scoop works really well for pouring the pudding into the holes.
