A moist and delicious Strawberry Milkshake Poke Cake made with melted ice cream topped with a layer of ice cream pudding and whip cream, make this a delicious combination of cake and ice cream all in one.
If you have not heard of a poke cake, it’s simply a baked cake with holes poked in the top using the end of a wooden spoon, so that you can pour pudding in the holes.
For this recipe you will use melted ice cream in the cake batter instead of milk.
For the pudding, you will also use melted ice cream instead of milk.
I used a boxed strawberry cake mix, strawberry ice cream (be sure to use a high quality brand ice cream) and a box of instant vanilla pudding mix.
Once the cake is done, you will poke holes in the top of the cake using the end of a wooden spoon.
Then pour your pudding mixture on top of the cake making sure the pudding gets down into the holes.
Use the flat part of a spoon to press the pudding into the holes.
Top with Cool Whip. There’s 1/4 cup of melted strawberry ice cream in the Cool Whip for additional Strawberry flavor.
You can freeze the cake for about 30 minutes before serving if you wish.
