Boston cream poke cake

Making another Poke cake!  Boston Cream that is.  Yum

A quick note:  Make sure your icing is of medium consistency.  Mine was too thin and as you will see in the photo it was syrup looking.  

Note: icing should spreadable or pourable but not thin. 

 I really will make this again with determination since my original recipe for Boston Cream Cake is awesome I was playing with the recipe to make it easier for the holidays.  Not as pretty but still delicious.  Enjoy!

***A quick thought. You can Fill the holes with chocolate pudding and top with cool whip.

1 pkg. white cake mix prepared according to directions
1 large vanilla instant pudding prepared according to directions or 1 regular size if you are only filling holes. 
13x9 inch pan
Spray pan bake cake according to directions

When baked remove from oven and poke large holes in cake immediately..

Cool completely.

While cake is baking make pudding according to directions and set aside

When cooled fill holes with pudding( note: just fill holes(large)use either end of a large whisk or something the size of a dime. Save extra pudding for use later for those who like more pudding! 
Icing cake with cocoa topping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

2 cups Confectioners sugar 
4 T Cocoa
A tsp at a time
8 oz. Cool whip optional

Example of size of holes.  Pudding needs larger size than you would use for jello liquid when making a poke cake with jello.

Happy Baking from my kitchen to yours,
