Boston Cream Poke Cake

 I love easy desserts that taste great. I also loooove Boston Cream Pies. (and Boston Cream donuts, who am kidding?!) This is one that is sure to impress, but is super easy to make.

How simple are these ingredients? I’m sure you have these in your pantry…

Simply make the yellow cake according to the directions. Once cool, take one of your wooden spoons (since I’m a southerner – I have a few!!) and take the handle and poke the cake, make sure there are plenty of pokes – so that each piece will have some pudding goodness.
Take the pudding (that you prepared and chilled while the cake was baking) and pour onto cake, making sure that it gets into the pokes. Spread evenly. 
Then, warm up your tub icing in the microwave until pour-able. Then pour that yummy goodness over the cake. 
Spread the icing evenly over the cake… then enjoy!

Boston Cream Poke Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
2 small boxes of vanilla pudding
1 tub chocolate icing

1. Prepare yellow cake according to the directions on the box. Allow to cool. Poke cake with the end of the wooden spoon.
2. While cake is baking, prepare pudding and allow to chill in the refrigerator.
3. After cake is cool, spread pudding over cake, making sure it gets into the pokes.
4. Microwave the icing in 30 second increments until it is soft and pour-able. Pour over cake and smooth out.
5. Serve and enjoy!

Because this cake has pudding, make sure to refrigerate any leftovers.

**Also, if you are trying to watch your calorie, carb, or sugar intake, I’ve made this with all sugar-free ingredients (cake mix, pudding, icing) and it tasted great!
