Banana Caramel Poke Cake

Banana Caramel Poke Cake

This Banana Caramel Poke Cake has a VERY moist cake layer topped with Banana JELL-O Pudding flavored Cool Whip. Caramel in the cake AND drizzled on top with some Nilla Wafers completes this luscious dessert.

I’ve never made a poke cake before. Wait, I’ve made JELL-O gelatin poke cakes. But never the kind that uses sweetened condensed milk.

After making this banana version, I AM SUCH A FAN. I can’t wait to make my next version.

I combined sweetened condensed milk with a jar of caramel ice cream topping sauce. It was a lot of moisture on top of this cake, BUT please, don’t let that deter you. Once you refrigerate the cake over night, it all gets soaked up and creates a super delicious bite of caramel banana cake.
