READY IN: 3hrs 45mins
Recipe by TasteTester

This is another version of "poke-cake" recipes. We like to make this in summer when the raspberry supply is plentiful. Note: Cooking time includes the 1-hour cooling time and 2 hours in the refrigerator before serving.

Well I had a bit of trouble finding a box white cake mix with pudding ( I have never seen it here it actually), so I improvised using a packet of vanilla cake mix and a vanilla pudding mix together and using milk instead of water and 2 eggs. I followed the rest of the instructions as per recipe and then I used normal cream (whipped). I wasnt sure if it would turn out (changing the ingredients) but wow it was fantastic and looked so pretty! The family loved it. A light and cool dessert to follow a heavy meal and it would go so on a warm night as a dessert also. Taster Tester a wonderful recipe, I will be making again. Thank You.
