How To Make Oreo Poke Cake
- Mix together the ingredients for the cake and then pour the batter into a greased baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and then allow the warm cake to cool.
- Poke holes all over the cake using the handle of a wooden spoon.
- Spread the pudding mixture filling all over the cooled cake and then refrigerate it.
- Frost the cake and then sprinkle the crushed Oreos all over the top of it.
Delicious Variations To Try!
- To make this dessert more chocolatey you can substitute the filling for chocolate pudding or even Chocolate Ganache!
- Make a golden version of the dessert using yellow cake mix and golden Oreos!
- Swap out the frosting for Homemade Whipped Cream or cool whip instead! Just spread the whipped topping onto the cake and then sprinkle on the crushed Oreos!
- For a more traditional poke cake, skip the whole milk and pudding mix and just use sweetened condensed milk!
How Do I Crush The Oreos?
Place the Oreos inside a zip lock bag and use a rolling pin to roll over the closed bag. Crush them as much or as little as you’d like! You can also chop them up with a large sharp knife.
How To Store
Cover any leftovers and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days!
