EASY Delicious Oreo & Pudding Poke Cake

I’m having so much fun with flavored Oreos these days! First there was the Cinnamon roll cookie bars – then there was the Fruity Crisp dessert.

Now we’re doing a yummy pudding poke cake recipe with Blueberry Pie Oreos!

Which, when you open the package, will release the tastiest scent. You’ll want to start stuffing the Oreos in your mouth instead of putting them in the cake, but don’t do that – it will be worth it to wait.

I absolutely love easy desserts that everyone is guaranteed enjoy, and this is that dessert. A little cake mix, a little pudding, and some cookies . . . the whole family is going to love it. I promise. This is going to be your go-to dessert recipe!

You might have a few questions about this recipe, so I’m going to answer the most commonly asked ones below before diving in.

What is a Poke Cake?

When I first heard the term I thought it was a little strange myself! But it’s a cake that you bake and then literally poke holes in with the end of a spoon or spatula.

The idea is that you add Jello or pudding to the top of the baked cake, it seeps into the holes, and then you add frosting or Cool Whip over the top.

The cake is then refrigerated and the Jello or pudding makes it moist and very delicious. You really can’t ruin this cake recipe and there are so many different combinations that will tickle your tummy.

It’s a perfect dessert to bring to a party because it’s really easy and everyone loves it.

And you don’t have to worry about your cake baking skills because with the Jello or pudding, it’s a guaranteed win.

Can I Use a Different Cake Mix?

Absolutely! You aren’t locked into any cake mix (or pudding, for that matter) for this poke cake recipe. Here are some poke cake combinations you should consider:

  • Chocolate cake with vanilla pudding
  • White cake with pistachio pudding
  • Devil’s food cake with butterscotch pudding
  • Banana cake with vanilla pudding
  • Yellow cake with chocolate pudding
  • Spice cake with gingerbread pudding (for the holidays!)

It’s really all about how creative you want to get. It’s hard to find a combination that isn’t tasty – trust me.

Can You Use Different Cookies?

Of course. I crumbled Oreos on my dessert because I saw the blueberry flavor and – since blueberry is my fave – I had to try them. They add such a fun summer flair to this poke cake.

Having said that, you can crumble any type of Oreos on the top, or other cookies for that matter. Oreo has so many fun flavors that are always coming and going, so it’s my go-to cookie for the top.
