Blueberries and Cream Poke Cake

I am excited to announce that my husband and I are expecting a second boy!! We are really excited and our son is really excited to be having a brother.  We found out a couple of months ago, but I never got around to making something blue to announce it.  I did announce it on Instagram, so if you follow me there you might know that we are having another boy.  At first I really wanted a girl, since this will probably be our last child, but I am really excited about having another boy and am excited of the relationship between our sons.
 
I am currently 28 weeks pregnant, so we don’t have that much time left to meet our sweet baby boy.  I need all that time to be able to get his room ready.  We finally switched my older son to a toddler bed, so we moved the crib to the baby room.  However, since the baby room has been storage, we have to move everything out of there and into the basement.  We are getting there but still have a good bit to do.  Since we are all so excited about our impending arrival, I decided to make a cake with blue in it to celebrate that we are having another boy.
 
This Blueberries and Cream Poke Cake was delicious and was the perfect treat for celebrating our second son. This cake is a great summer treat.  The blueberry pie filling tasted great combined with sweetened condensed milk and poked into the vanilla cake.  The cake was so moist and very delicious.  This would be great to make for a baby shower or for any occasion.  I hope you enjoy this delicious cake!
 

 

Blueberries and Cream Poke Cake

Blueberries and Cream Poke Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 box white cake mix + the ingredients on the back of the box
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup blueberry pie filling
  • 1 container (8 ounces) whipped cream
  • 2 tablespoons blueberry pie filling

Instructions

  1. Prepare the cake according to the directions on the box.
  2. Once the cake is cooled, use a wooden spoon to poke holes evenly throughout the cake, making about 25-30 holes.
  3. In a bowl combine the sweetened condensed milk and the cup of blueberry pie filling.  
  4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk mixture evenly over the cake, trying to fill up the holes.
  5. Mix the 2 tablespoons of just the blueberry pie filling into the whipped topping container. Mix together until combined then spread the whipped cream on top of the cake. 
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve. The longer you refrigerate the cake the more the flavors will seep into the cake and the more moist the cake will be. I usually refrigerate the cake overnight. This makes about 12 large pieces. If desired, drizzle more blueberry pie filling on top.
