Oreo Poke Cake

Healthier Oreo Poke Cake made with applesauce, filled with condensed milk and Oreo Flavored whipped topping.

I don’t normally use box cake mixes, but this one tastes like the most decadent oreo cake with a molten creme filling (the condensed milk flavor is amazing). The perfect poke cake.

Poke Cakes are usually so rich and heavy that most people who are dieting haven’t considered them viable options. Even when making this recipe, when you start adding up the condensed milk, the cake, the toppings and more, you can start getting nervous of all the big numbers. Even worse if you’re making a classic cake recipe.
 
This is the second recipe where I’m using a cake mix to create a great dessert option. The first was a delicious Strawberry Shortcake Poke Cake that we can’t stop making this summer.
Since we are using Cool Whip for the topping this cake can be cut and served in a party setting without worrying about homemade whipped cream melting. You also save quite a lot of points because you aren’t using frosting but the Cool Whip is still shelf stable.

You can certainly adjust the flavors as you’d like or add in extra toppings you may love. I added extra chunks of Oreos on the top as a cute garnish but you can also crumble up additional Oreos on top.
 
24 servings for the pan may seem extreme, but in a 9×13 pan this is pretty standard for a small slice of cake!

Some great summery Poke Cake Flavors!

  • Strawberry Lemonade Poke Cake: Add in extra lemon juice and zest into the condensed milk, cake mix and topping.
  • Coconut Lime Poke Cake: Add lime flavors in place of strawberry and add in coconut flakes in the cake and top with toasted coconut.
  • Fruit Punch Poke Cake: Use fruit punch jello flavoring and add in chopped strawberries, grapes and orange zest into the cake mix.
  • Mango Poke Cake: Substitute mango powder in place of strawberry and add chunks of mango in the cake as well as on top of the cake.

  1. Yum, this looks like the perfect sweet treat to bring to a cookout or family get together!

  2. Can you provide the nutritional information as you did for the strawberry poke cake? I’m interested to know how many calories per serving. Thanks!

  3. 5 stars
    I’m eating this right now and it is SO GOOD!!! This is my new favorite cake!! Thank you so much for posting the recipe!! I gave this recipe 5 stars…I wish I could give it a 100!!! πŸ™‚

      1. So once you poke cake and add milk are you still baking or is this step after cake has cooled from oven?

  4. What is condensed milk? I’m familiar with sweetened condensed milk – is this the same thing? If not, can you tell us where to shop for condensed milk please?

    1. The company that uses “points” has reached out to me claiming points are proprietary and demanded that I stop sharing them with my recipes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    1. The company that uses “points” has reached out to me claiming points are proprietary and demanded that I stop sharing them with my recipes. But you might get different results using a recipe creator that calculates points for each ingredient individually.

  5. I’m a little confused. When I type in all the ingredients on WW recipe builder, it says 3pts (on Blue) per serving.
    …when I use numbers off the nutrition guide and plug them in to the WW calculator, it says 12pts per serving. Which is it?

    1. Hi Cali, I wish I could help you with this. I was sent a letter by them requiring I remove all counts from the site. I asked them to reconsider and was firmly told no.

  6. I’m wondering if you can leave out the eggs, applesauce and yogurt and just use a can of pumpkin. Bake the cake as usual then add the sweetened condensed milk. I make this cake all the time but use the pumpkin.do you think it would work? I figured it at 5 Ww points doing it this way.
