I need to rant to you guys a minute, and it has no relation to this recipe, so feel free to just skip past this part of if you want. Wait, what? You mean you aren’t here to listen to me rant?

They are currently painting our condo complex and it is driving me NUTS. This week I happen to be home and around the house all day and my windows, my front door and my driveway are all taped up and shut. I ran out to Target for a few minutes and when I came back, I couldn’t get back in the front door, they had to a cut a hole for me to get through. Did I mention it’s been this way for 3 days now?

The past two nights have been really hot inside the house, it’s like the plastic is keeping the heat in, and this girl can’t stop baking over here. So at last I am stuck inside my house with my hot oven complaining to myself all day. How else would I be able to make this Oreo Poke Cake for you? Tragic right?

Every layer of this Ultimate Oreo Poke Cake will make you go crazy! The chocolate cake is loaded with Oreos, it's soaked in chocolate pudding and topped with an Oreo whipped cream.

There are two things my boyfriend fiance  loves: chocolate cake and Oreos. So naturally I was excited for him to try this dessert. He ate 3 slices- for breakfast! That’s how good this is. He would probably be embarrassed that I told you that. Oops. He doesn’t love whipped cream, but he loved that I mixed the Oreos into the whipped cream. He told me if reminds him of a ho-ho. That sounds like a win if I have ever heard one.

You won’t even know what to do with this Ultimate Oreo Poke Cake, it is THAT good. The chocolate cake is loaded with Oreos, it's soaked in chocolate pudding and topped with an Oreo whipped cream.

This recipe starts with my favorite doctored chocolate cake mix recipe, which is from The Cake Mix Doctor. I crushed up some Oreos on top of the cake and tossed it in the oven. I threw a handful of Oreos in a plastic bag and beat them with a rolling pin to break them apart, nothing fancy. The Oreos didn’t sink to the bottom either, and they softened up quite a bit once the cake was baked.

For the filling, I soaked this cake in hot fudge sauce and chocolate pudding, the more chocolate the better right? Just heat the hot fudge until it’s pourable and reserve a couple of tablespoons to drizzle over top.

For the topping, I used a container of Cool Whip, just for the purposes of ease, but you can very well make your own homemade whipped cream. Just use 1 ½ cups of heavy whipping cream and add ¾ cup powdered sugar. The powdered sugar is a thickening agent that will help to stabilize the whipped cream. Then I just took some more crushed Oreos and fold them into the Cool Whip.

Once this cake is refrigerated for a couple of hours, I served it up with some more crushed Oreos on top and I drizzled it with hot fudge sauce. You guys, there are so much Oreos and chocolate in this poke cake, it’s bananas, in the best way possible.

The funny thing is, I bought this cake to work and we were out of forks, so my coworkers just started digging in with their hands. HA! You would too if this was sitting in front of you. Just do it.

Description

There’s way too much to love with this Ultimate Oreo Poke Cake. The chocolate cake is loaded with Oreos, it’s soaked in chocolate pudding and topped with an Oreo whipped cream.

Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 1 box (15oz) chocolate cake mix
  • ¾ cup (177ml) milk
  • ½ cup (118ml) vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 8 ounces light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) vanilla extract
  • 30 Oreos, divided

For the topping

  • 1 jar (16oz) hot fudge sauce
  • 1 package (3.4z) instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 ¾ cup (414ml) milk
  • 1 container Cool Whip or 1 batch homemade whipped cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cake mix, milk (3/4 cup), vegetable oil, eggs, sour cream and vanilla extract. Mix all the ingredients together until it’s well combined.
  3. Pour the batter into a 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Take 10 Oreos and place in a plastic bag. Use a rolling pin or other heavy object and crush the Oreos into smaller pieces. Sprinkle on top of the cake. If you can’t fit them all, save them for the topping.
  4. Bake the cake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes. To test the cake for doneness, stick a toothpick in the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done.
  5. Allow the cake to cool for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Use a wooden spoon and poke a bunch of holes all over the top of the cake.
  6. For the topping: Heat the jar of hot fudge according to the instructions on the jar until it is a pourable consistency. Reserve 3 tablespoons to drizzle over top of the cake. Pour the remaining hot fudge over the cake.
  7. Prepare the instant chocolate pudding by combining the milk and the pudding and whisk until the dry ingredients are dissolved. Pour the pudding over top of the cake. Place the cake in the refrigerator until it is completely cooled.
  8. To make the topping, crush 10 more Oreos in a large plastic bag and fold into the Cool Whip. Spread the Cool Whip over top of the cake and return to the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  9. Prior to serving, top the cake with more crushed Oreos and drizzle with hot fudge.

Notes

  • To substitute homemade whipped cream for Cool Whip, use 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream and 3/4 cup powdered sugar.

    Too bad when you said, “… it’s bananas,” I immediately thought I could put fresh cut banana slices on top!!! Yummmmmmm… this recipe looks so great and EASY! Gonna plug this into next week’s dessert rotation! Thanks!

  2. DD

    This is a nice option for a easy dessert and it’s delicious! Sometimes there is just not enough time to make everything from scratch. So I really appreciate having some easy recipe options on the site. I used Oreo pudding instead which turned out great. My hubby and son LOVED this poke cake and I will make it again. Thanks!

      Hi Natalie, It can, but I worry about the liquid in a round cake. I know people have do it, but I am hesitant to steer you down the wrong path.

  3. Chanell

    This looks amazing. I definitely will be trying this out in the next few days. I don’t care for pudding is there a substitute for it? Or do you even taste the pudding?

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Chanell, you can try using sweet condensed milk instead? The pudding really adds an amazing element to the cake, so personally I wouldn’t skip out on it. That being said, it would still be just fine without it.

  4. Rob

    I lost interest when I seen boxed cake mix. Be a baker and make your own cake mix! I mean no disrespect it’s probably a good cake but I will not make anything from a box.

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Rob, you’re welcome to use your own homemade chocolate cake. The intention of my website is to appeal to wide variety of bakers. If someone feels comfortable using a cake mix, who am I to judge. If you’re looking for homemade cakes and cupcakes, there’s plenty available for you on my blog. Have a great day.

  5. Amy

    Do you think you can make this a day ahead? I’m worried the cookies would get soggy but would like to prepare ahead if possible – anyone do that?

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Amy, absolutely yes. The cookies definitely soften, but to a cake-like texture. It’s just perfect. If you want some crunch, then sprinkles cookies over the top right before serving.

  6. Megan

    I️ just put the cake in the oven and since there are 2 different measurements for milk with no specifications. I️ think I used too much milk in the cake!!! Are you supposed to use the 3/4 in the cake and the 1 3/4 in the pudding? I️ feel my daughters bday cake is going to be ruined ?

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Megan, that is correct, there is 3/4 cup milk in the cake and 1 3/4 cup milk in the pudding.
      is that what you did? Thank you for the feedback and I am sorry the recipe was not clear. I’ve updated it now.

  7. Rachel Lynette

    This cake is amazing! I made it for my son’s 24th birthday and everyone loved it. I used chocolate-filled Oreos instead of the regular ones and I topped it with additional mini-Oreos. YUM!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Joni, did you use a glass or metal pan? A glass pan will take longer. Every oven is a little different, but as long as it was set in the middle you should be okay!

  8. Barb

    Looks Yummy!! I plan on trying it soon. A week or so ago I made your peanut butter pie and it was a HUGE hit. My somewhat picky 26 year old son claims it is his new favorite. Hard to believe it beat out his favorite (I thought) banana cream pie. Both my sons said I could make it again soon!

  9. Ging

    Oh, I’m in heaven. I love chocolate and Oreo’s. I’ve got to try this over the weekend. Thanks for posting and sharing it with us.
