Boston Cream Poke Cake
Yіеldѕ: 12 servings
Prep Tіmе: 2 hours 20 mins
Cооk Time: 0 hours 30 mіnѕ
Total Time: 2 hоurѕ 50 mіnѕ
1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
2 (5.1-oz) packs of instant vanilla pudding
4 c. cold milk
2 c. chocolate chips
1 c. heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9″-x-13” pan with cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to box instructions. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
Cool cake completely, then poke big holes across entire surface of the cake using the rounded end of a wooden spoon. In a medium bowl, whisk together pudding mix and milk until mixture begins to thicken. Pour over the cake and spread with a spatula to make sure the pudding pours into the holes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Make the ganache: Put chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl and set aside. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, bring heavy cream to a simmer, then pour over chocolate chips, whisking until smooth. Pour ganache over chilled cake and serve.
