I'm definitely going to make this cake this summer! My favorite chocolate cake recipe is very similar to the base cake recipe: cheesewithnoodles.blogspot.com/2015/09/crazy-cake.html I've been super curious about trying a yellow cake version of it. What kind of pudding do you use? What brand and what size? I'm in the US, and when I think of vanilla pudding mix, I think of the Jell-o brand, which is more yellow than what you're using, and it would be very thick if you made it a couple hours before using it like your recipe suggests. I may just have to go with it anyway and mix it up right before pouring it over the cake so it will be thin enough to go down the holes.

In any case, thanks for the great looking recipe, I'm really looking forward to trying it. It looks so yummy with all those strawberries piled on top!

The reason my pudding looks lighter is because I made it with almond milk this time - It has sometimes been a little thicker with regular milk but it has no trouble going in the holes which are quite large. It is really yummy and super easy to make.

it looks really good I'm making it now The recipe doesn't say to add 1 cup of water, at least that I can see, to the batter before mixing it. but most of these kinds of cakes call for that

I made this poke cake today and while the rest of the sthings worked, the "batter" was too dry and I ended up using my own cake recipe. The cake I made with this recipe was oddly salty and wayyy too dry to work with. I understand why the cake should be harder bc we add vanilla but the cake part of the recipe was a total fail. The idea was great though!

Suze, I am so incredibly sorry - After I read your comment I went back over the post to see what was wrong, because this truly is an amazing dessert. I realized that I was missing the 1 cup of water from the recipe - I had it in the video but not the written directions.
