Oreo “Puddin’ Poke Cake”

10 Feb

(Review by Denise)

One of my favorite desserts is Jello Poke Cake. (If you haven’t experienced that boatload of mushy goodness, STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW. Check out the recipe here, then go to the store and buy the ingredients and make it. You can come back and read this review when your newly made recipe is setting in the fridge. You’re welcome.)  Puddin’ Poke Cake, as you may have guessed by now, is the same idea only uses pudding instead of Jello. Genius. I attribute that genius to The Country Cook, where she includes the recipe here.

The way she spins it, she bakes a chocolate cake and uses Oreo-flavored pudding. I didn’t even know such a flavor existed. (It really does.) I didn’t bother crushing Oreo cookies on top because then I wouldn’t have any Oreo cookies to eat the normal way. (As in, not crushed on top of a dessert.)

Here’s the downside: the pudding didn’t drip down into the holes to saturate the cake. It was just a chocolate cake with Oreo pudding for icing. (The things I complain about! “…just a chocolate cake with Oreo pudding for icing.” *Snort.*) Next time I will make deep craters all over the puppy instead of cute little holes. (And just so we’re clear, I didn’t abuse a puppy.) I’ll also whip up that pudding and pour it over the cake pronto, instead of waiting the two minutes A Country Cook suggests.

Verdict? Pass. You betcha’. You think I’m going to let a little issue like a lack of pudding marbleization throw this chocolate-Oreo-mushiness under the bus? You’ve got another think coming.

But truly, what is your opinion? Have you tried A Country Cook‘s Pudding Poke Cake? Let us know on the poll below!
