When you use a moist cake mix it truly does come out moist.
I added 4 bananas, I love a strong banana flavor, but feel free to use only 3 bananas.
Make sure the bananas are ripened and mashed. I store over ripe bananas in my freezer and set them out to thaw when they are needed. They turn black, but these are the best kind of bananas to use in breads and cakes. You get the most banana flavor from over ripe bananas.
What’s a poke cake, you ask? We will get to making the pudding in a sec. Some of you already know, but I had never heard of a poke cake until I started posting recipes.
There’s always pudding involved with a poke cake. Using the round end of a wooden spoon poke holes in the cake after it has baked and cooled. Then pour delicious pudding on top of the cake pressing the pudding down into the holes with the back of a spoon.
For the pudding I used cook & serve, because I think it taste more homemade when you cook it on the stove. It takes only 5 minutes and you can cook it while the cake is baking.
You can also use instant pudding if you wish. This takes about 2 minutes to prepare. I use a blender for making instant pudding, you can also use a hand mixer. Letting the pudding sit for 5 minutes after you have mixed it is the key to getting it thick.
