Red Velvet Poke Cake


  1. 1 box red velvet cake mix
  2. ingredients needed to make cake (eggs, oil & water)
  3. 2 (3.4 oz.) boxes instant cheesecake-flavored pudding
  4. 4 cups milk
  5. 1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping (COOL WHIP), thawed
  6. 10 Oreo cookies, crushed (optional)

  • Prepare cake mix according to package directions for a 9x13 cake.
  • Once cake comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for just a couple of minutes.
  • Then, with a wooden spoon handle, a spatula handle, or some other similarly-sized object, begin poking holes in the warm cake. You want the holes to be BIG so that the pudding has plenty of room to get down in there. Be sure to poke right down to the bottom of the cake.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together pudding mix with 4 cups of milk. Whisk until all the lumps are gone.
