Pineapple Pudding Poke Cake
The one thing I love about poke cakes is there are endless combinations and flavors. I have a huge amount of poke cakes on this site. I just love them because they are so easy but so darn delicious! This recipe for Pineapple Pudding Poke Cake is no exception to that rule! It has a delicious summer-y flavor. All you need is cake mix, pudding, Cool Whip and pineapples.

There are lots of ways you could even change up this recipe. You could top it with sweetened shredded coconut. Or, if you’re feeling fancy, you could stir in a bit of rum in with the pudding mixture for an adult twist. I love the addition of pineapple slices in this. You definitely don’t want to skip it. It really makes this cake super special.

- Bake the cake according to boxed cake directions. Cake is finished when a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool completely.
- Poke holes into cake using the end of a wooden spoon. You want about 12-16 holes.
- In a bowl, whisk together pudding with milk until smooth. Pour the mixture onto the cake and spread out with a knife or spatula, gently pushing down to make sure the pudding gets down into the holes.
- Top with whipped topping and pineapple chunks and then refrigerate for a few hours prior to serving. This cake gets better the longer it sits so you can make it the day before you need it. Just keep it in the fridge.
