The Two Minute Warning
I fell in love with a recipe that I recently viewed on Pinterest. I was so excited to indulge in it’s goodness. I began my work on this recipe last night with my taste buds tingling for the treat. However, as my excitement grew, my execution waned, and the result was a “flopped” dessert. The inteded chocolatey goodness turned out to be a delicious mistake that I will share with you. I will certainly try this recipe again, with a bit more focus the second time around, but knowing that I will enjoy every last crumb if the results are replayed.

Oreo Pudding Poke Cake

Original Recipe:


1 Box chocolate cake mix


2 boxes of instant oreo pudding mix


Orea cookies, crushed

My Recipe:


1 box devil’s food cake mix


2 boxes white chocolate instant pudding


Oreo cookes, crushed (optional: any cookie or candy bar topping)

Mix and bake the cake as instructed. After the cake is finished baking, pull out of the oven and mix the pudding together. Allow the pudding to rest for 2 minutes, and while it is sitting for those brief moments, quickly poke holes in the cake about 1 inch apart. I used a slender handle on a spoon, as the holes should be a bit larger than a toothpick. Pour the pudding mixture all over the warm cake and allow to cool completely. Chill in the fridge for one hour, and sprinkle crushed cookies on the cake just before serving.


These directions are a bit different than the instructions I followed (from the original recipe).  I recommend allowing the cake to completely finish baking before mixing the pudding. I found that the pudding was set in FOUR minutes! It only took a very brief amount of time before the pudding set, therefore it was too thick to run into the holes that I had punctured in my cake. I ended up with a layer of pudding OVER my cake. Again, this cake was SO delicious, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the dark and white chocolate blissful combination, but I can imagine how much more delicious it could be, if executed properly.  Take heed to the 2 minute warning!
