Banana Split Poke Cake Recipe

In honor of my birthday today, we are sharing a Banana Split Poke Cake recipe. My mom used to make a Hawaiian Sheet Cake for my birthday every year. This is the closest to that since I don’t have an oven in my RV only a convection oven. It tastes the same and is so much easier to make.

Happy Birthday to me!

How to Make a Jello Pudding Banana Split Cake

Bake the cake in a 9×13″ casserole-style pan according to package directions.

Let the cake cool slightly as you prepare the pudding mix by mixing with 2 cups cold milk.

While the cake is still warm, poke several holes with the back of a wooden spoon all around the cake and pour the prepared pudding overtop. Spread to cover completely with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.
