Peanut Butter Banana Poke Cake

from the video Easy Poke Cake 4 Ways ▶︎

by Matthew Johnson


for 12 servings

  • 1 box yellow cake mix, prepared according to package
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup (240 g) creamy peanut butter, melted
  • 14 oz (400 g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 oz (225 g) whipped topping
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • ½ cup (120 g) creamy peanut butter, melted
  • ½ cup (65 g) roasted peanut, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare your favorite plain yellow cake recipe or use a prepared box and follow its instructions.
  3. Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke at least 3 rows of 4 holes in the cooked cake, making 12 holes total.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the mashed banana, melted peanut butter, and sweetened condensed milk, if needed, add a extra milk to loosen.
  5. Pour the mixture over the cake and let settle into the holes into the cake for about 10 minutes. Some of the mixture will still stay on top, which is okay.
  6. Spread the whipped topping evenly on top. Place sliced bananas, drizzle melted peanut butter, and sprinkle the roasted peanuts on top.
  7. Chill the cake anywhere from 3 hours to overnight.
  8. Enjoy!
