I decided to add even more cherry taste to this simple cake by making it a cherry poke cake. Just poked holes in the cake and poured cherry gelatin over it. The cake got rave reviews and will definitely be made again in our house. Read More

I made this cake to take to christmas dinner with my family and it was a huge hit! I also made it a poke cake as suggested by another reviewer using raspberry jello to pour over the cake. I also mixed about a cup of whipped cream in with the pudding. Very moist and tasty without being too rich of a dessert. Read More
