Red, White and Blue Poke Cake
I made this recently for snacks after our church service. It was a huge hit! I took the suggestion of another reviewer and used the wide end of a chopstick to poke the holes. Even with the bigger hole, I didn't get the wide stripes shown in the picture. I think the original recipe has a type error in the amount of milk it calls for. I'm not sure Betty Crocker reads these reviews, so I will send that info directly to them. I was making a big cake, 14x14, so I used two puddings and started with 2/3 cup milk adding the pudding to the milk instead of the other way around. It was too thick, so I kept whisking in milk, maybe about 2 tablespoons at a time, until it was about the consistency of peanut butter and beating until the lumps were gone. I then folded in the Cool Whip. I'm being encouraged to make this cake again, so I most likely will. I love these cakes because they are not overly sweet.
