How to Make Peanut Butter & Jelly Poke Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR THE CAKE:
    Preheat your oven to 350°F.
    Line a 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
    In a large bowl combine all cake ingredients and mix (with an electric mixer) until smooth and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
    Pour Batter into baking pan.
    Bake for 35 minutes.
    Let cake just cool for 2 minutes, then poke lots of holes with the end of a wooden spoon into it.
  2. THE FILLING:
    Microwave the strawberry jam on high for about 45 seconds.
    Stir and pour over cake, making sure to fill the holes.
  3. THE TOPPING:
    In a medium saucepan combine milk, sugar, peanut butter, cornstarch and egg yolk.
    Bring to a boil (while stirring).
    Boil until the mixture gets really thick, about 10 minutes (never stop stirring).
    Let pudding cool down for 5 minutes, then spread gently over the cake.
    Place in fridge until completely cooled.
    Top with some whipped cream before serving (optional).
