How to make Oreo Poke Cake:
Start by making the cake according to directions. Once baked you poke holes in the cake and mix together your topping. Pour it over the cake and spread it out. Enjoy!
- Chocolate Box Cake Mix
- Ingredients called for on the cake box
- Marshmallow Fluff
- Oreos (finely crushed)
Step one: Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Step two: Next prepare your cake and then bake it all according to package directions.
Step three: Meanwhile, while your cake is baking prepare the filling. This will be what you pour into the "pokes" in the cake.
Heat marshmallow fluff and water in the microwave for 10-30 seconds or until smooth and creamy. Then mix in finely crushed Oreos.
Step four: When the cake is cooked through remove it from the oven and use a wooden spoon's handle to poke holes all over the cake. You can see this in the picture below.
Step five: Allow your cake to partly cool then pour the marshmallow fluff mixture into the holes of the cake.
- Tip: You can add your filling to a partly cooked cake but allow your cake to cool completely before adding the frosting. Otherwise, your frosting will melt.
How to make the frosting:
The frosting for this poke cake is amazing and very easy to make!
- Heavy Cream
- Powdered Sugar
- Oreos (crushed and divided)
Step six: Next go ahead and prepare your topping beat heavy cream, powdered sugar, and salt. In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer mix until peaks start to form.
Then fold ½ cup crushed Oreos.
Step seven: Spread frosting on the top of the prepared cake and then sprinkle on the remaining ½ cup crushed Oreos to the top. Slice and serve.
What is a Poke Cake:
A poke cake is just that, a cake you poke! Make your cake according to the directions and then poke holes in it. You then fill it with Jello, pudding, or cream.
Top with frosting or cool whip and you will have a great dessert everyone will love and enjoy.
If you want to see a recipe that I used Jello and cool whip then check out this recipe, Patriotic Poke Cake.
How to store the Poke Cake:
A poke cake is super moist and has a tendency to get soggy if it sits too long. You want to eat this cake within 3 days of making it. Store it in the baking dish, covered, and in the refrigerator.
Can I make a Poke Cake ahead of time?
A poke cake can definitely be made ahead of time. Due to the nature of a poke cake, I recommend only making it 24 hours in advance. If making in advance do not top with the crushed Oreos as they will be the first thing to become soggy. Save some Oreos to crush and top right before serving.
