Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake Recipe

Did your mom make poke cake when you were little? I can remember red ones, yellow ones, green ones and orange ones. Didn’t matter the flavor, we devoured them!


Poke around in your pantry and fridge and you’ll probably find most, if not all, of the ingredients for this easy cake.


After making the cake and letting it cool, it’s time to poke the holes. My mom always used the handle of her wooden spoon for our cakes.


After you’ve dissolved the Jell-O, pour it slowly and evenly over the top of the cake. It will be so pretty later when you cut into it.


The extra little layer of yumminess comes from the Cheesecake Pudding Mix. After it’s been spread over the cake and then you’ve chilled the cake for about an hour, you can frost it with whipped topping and sliced strawberries. strawberry heart
