Poke Cake

  • Yield 24 servings

A creamy, vanilla pudding cake topped with a fluffy, whipped topping


"My five grandchildren ask for this cake often. I usually have it on hand when they visit, and it never lasts long."


1 box white cake mix
1 cup orange soda (any brand)
1 (3-ounce) box vanilla instant pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
1 (8-ounce) tub whipped topping


  1. Bake cake according to package instructions in a 9-by-13-inch pan.
  2. When cool, poke holes all through the top of the cake with a butter knife or fork. Pour orange soda evenly over the top.
  3. Mix pudding and milk together until well blended. Fold in whipped topping until smooth.
  4. Spread pudding mixture over cake and store in the refrigerator until serving time.

Tips From Our Test Kitchen: This cake also is good with cherry or strawberry soda. Garnish with a generous dollup of whipped topping and fresh fruit.
