Peaches & Cream Poke Cake

Semi-homemade dessert - Peaches and Cream Poke Cake

Peaches and Cream Poke Cake is a delicious semi-homemade dessert using fresh or frozen peaches. This layered sweet treat is topped with fresh whipped cream. It’s luscious!

The fresh peaches should be hitting farmer’s markets any time now here in South Carolina. I can’t wait to have peachy everything while they last.

Poke cakes are popular with their little pockets filled with burst of sweet flavor from the cake toppings. Since poke cakes are easy to prepare and baked in sheet cake form, they’re perfect for potlucks and gatherings.

Peaches

Here’s what you’ll need for this easy dessert: yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, sweetened condensed milk, fresh or frozen peaches, heavy cream, vanilla extract and granulated or powdered sugar. Let’s bake a cake y’all!

Peaches and Cream Poke Cake

Step 1: Prepare the cake mix according to package instruction and bake in a 13×9 casserole dish. Allow the cake to cool completely. Poke holes in the cake using the handle of a wooden spoon.

Step 2:Β In a small mixing bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla pudding mix. Pour over the cake and spread out evenly.

Step 3:Β Reserve twelve peach slices for garnish. Cut the remaining peaches into smaller pieces and layer over the cake.

Step 4:Β Prepare the fresh whipped cream. Place a metal or glass mixing bowl in the freezer for about half an hour to chill. Add the heavy cream to the chilled mixing bowl with the vanilla extract and beat with a mixer until stiff peaks form. It’s completely optional if you wish to sweeten the whipped cream by adding granulated or confectioners sugar. If you use granulated sugar you will notice a bit of a grit from the size of the sugar grains. The whipped cream is perfectly delicious without the sugar. Add the fresh whipped cream on top of the peach layer on the cake and spread to cover the cake. Garnish with the reserved peach slices.
