The other day I shared with you my recipe for the best homemade banana pudding. While it’s amazing on it’s own, I couldn’t resist using it to make this Banana Cream Pie Poke Cake. You have got to try this, friends!
When you need a dessert that will not only feed a crowd, but also throughly impress them – make this cake! It’s cool, creamy, and totally dreamy. While most poke cakes you find are made with a boxed cake mix and boxed pudding mix, my version is made from scratch. It is so much better this way and seriously doesn’t take much more effort!
This cake has a few steps to it, but I promise it’s easy to make. This cake is perfect for potlucks and cookouts – everyone will beg for the recipe!
Is this best made in advance or the day of? Store in refrigerator?

Mmmm so creamy-delicious! Banana cream pie rocks! I’d love to try your version of it.
I grew up eating poke cakes made from scratch. Pudding poke cakes were me absolute favorites. This one looks fantastic! I can practically taste the bananas just looking at it.

Im a bit embarrassed to say that I have never tried to make a poke cake before! I really want to try this one! My mother in law loves banana cream pie flavored anything. I will be pinning this to make later to bring for dessert!

Poke cakes are so much fun to make! I really like the banana cream pie idea and think it is so lovely to bring to a summer party!
This just screams summer to me!! Banana pudding is my favorite and this is everything I love in one delicious cake!!
I plan on making this cake but first I have a question….when it comes to making the pudding for the cake, I am assuming that after I add the vanilla and bananas to the pudding mixture, I pour it on the cake…and do not do the last pudding instruction which is to let cool, then cover and chill to thicken….
Stephanie Brubaker says
Hi Patricia! You still want to let the pudding cool and thicken before pouring over the cake. Hope you enjoy it!
I love banana pudding and this cake looks so delicious!
