I got this recipe from a friend and I have never tried it

Bake a white cake mix (this time I used banana).

When it cOols poke holes in it (I use an apple corer n go about midway thru the cake).

Mix up a large box of instant vanilla pudding and pour over the cake. Then refrigerate overnight

. The next day slice and put a layer of bananas over the pudding, top With cool whip and garnish with nilla wafer crumbles.

what i would like to know is, can I bake the cake mix in a glass 2 quart casserole dish ? and I'm assuming she is making a single layer cake,not the usual 2 layer cake,I'm not sure which it is :) but I do want to try this,so any help would be appreciated

Well, this does sound like one of those poke banana pudding cakes. They way I usually do this is by mixing the cake mix (i use vanilla), the size of the container doesn't matter that much... as long as it is deep enough. I bake the cake in a big pyro rey container (squared). Once the cake is done i poke the holes. I use vanilla pudding and add banana extract. I then add the pudding, spread it all over the cake, so it penetrates the cake. Then I do exactly what you said your friend does. It's very easy :)

OMG. My king would love this. I HAVE to try this for him. He LOVES bananas. When I bought cake mixes, the recommended pan sizes and baking times came in the back but Trellum is right. Size usually doesn't matter that much.

That sounds good. I've had a few poke cakes over the years, and have made one. The one I made was a whiskey poke cake, I think. It's been a while, so I don't recall exactly, but I made it with a friend, from her recipe, and I believe we used plastic drinking straws to poke the holes in the cake. I think it was a bundt cake. I've also had jello poke cakes, and those are good, too. Banana sounds delicious, as well. I wonder how it would be with chocolate pudding?

@Diane Lane Why not try? ;) I think it would work very well, if it was me I'd use chocolate cake mix, the chocolate pudding and I'd add some coffee extract to the pudding. Maybe also a bit of coffee extract would be added to the cake mix, just a tiny bit though! I'd love to try that! Does it sound good?

That does sound good @Trellum and I might end up adding a bit of Bailey's or Tia Maria, some type of liqueur, to make it even more special. I can't think about anything too sweet right now, but I've got a nice brownie recipe set aside for a good day, and will think about this, as well. Actually, I might be able to combine them somehow, that sounds pretty yummy!

Well I had no idea about this kind of cake. The only time I poke anything is when I am checking to see if my baking is finish and I really do give it quite a poking. I'd love to see a picture of this. The banana caught my attention. The result and method surprised me. I'll look this up but I doubt I'll be trying it anytime soon.

Oh my, yes!!!!! I knew I was missing something lol, a good liquor is never a bad idea, they always that last finishing touch that makes any recipe taste even more special ;) Maybe try some kahlua if using coffee extract? I think those two would rock! We might have thought of a really nice and tasty dessert :) Do you think a chocolate cake mix would be too much?

ooh I thought a whiskey poke cake meant that you were drinking whiskey while making it :)
