This unique Christmas dessert recipe will wow your friends and family. Eggnog Pudding Poke Cake is a layered poke cake made with french vanilla cake mix.

You'll finally have a new way to enjoy this holiday beverage treat -- it's perfect for eating after a hearty Christmas dinner.

Serves: 12- 16 people

Cooking Time: 35 min

  • 1 French vanilla-flavored cake mix (plus required box ingredients)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 package white chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 1 cup salted caramel sauce
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon for garnish

But wait, there's more! See these 8 Excellent Recipes with Eggnog for even more ways to use Christmas' favorite drink in your cooking.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the cake mix as the box directs and bake for 30-35 minutes until the center tests dry when a toothpick is inserted into it. Remove cake to a cooking rack. While cake is still warm, use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes 2 apart all over the cake.
  3. Combine the pudding mix with the egg nog and stir gently for 2 minutes, then pour over the cake and into the holes. Cool cake to room temperature.
  4. Spread the caramel sauce over the cake, covering the surface. Top with the whipped topping and then shake cinnamon through a wire sieve to garnish the top. Chill for 2 hours before cutting to serve. Store, covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator.

Not a huge eggnog fan, but really enjoyed this dessert! Would make it any time of year - not just at Christmas. Light and fluffy and not too sweet!

I LOVED this dessert! I don't like eggnog but this cake changed everything. For sure adding this recipe to the Christmas lineup this year!

Well... I'm obsessed. Definitely making this for Christmas this year.

I loved this cake. Eggnog has such a short season, so I try to use a lot of it around the holidays. I love the idea of using it in a cake. The flavor was great and the cake was super moist, just the way I like it )

I loved the caramel! It was delicious!

What a clever idea, to use eggnog in place of milk with the pudding for this cake. That inspires me to try it with just pudding (and no cake) also. Definitely makes for a moist cake, with just the right amount of eggnog so as not to be overpowering.

If I ever need a quick and easy Christmas dessert, I'd make this again for sure! The eggnog flavor was not too strong, and it gave the cake a great taste. IT reminded me of a tres leches cake.

I plan to fix this for Christmas dessert because my daughter has never eaten (or even HEARD OF) "poke" cake. I think she'll be wonderfully surprised because she loves eggnog!

This sounds great !!!

Never had egg nog so what a great way to get the taste without actually having to drink it from a glass!
