  1. Yep! I'm one of them nodding my head and calling you a genius Jamie! I showed this to Mr. B and his eyes got big and all he could utter was "Geezus!". That to me means I have to pin it to make for him soon 🙂

  2. Well, there are all these "talks" about him still being alive … IF so, your poke cake should draw him out most definitely ..lol! Awesome, Jamie, I pinned this 😉 {and wait for that knock on the door from the King!!}

  3. I've never had that combination of flavors together but I like them all separately so definitely trying this one out. Yum! Thanks for linking up to the weekend re-Treat link party!

  4. Oh my Lard! I found you via the link party at Tater Tots and Jello…and so glad I did! Poke Cakes? You are a lady after my own heart love them…any way, any time…any flavor. I am simply amazed at all the blogs I find, that I never knew about! Subscribing now…I don't want to miss anymore!

    Elvis? I am with you, it is OK…but I never really "got" him, maybe it is a generational, thing, heck it I know…but you had me at BACON with this cake! LOVE IT!

  5. Chocolate "Wasted" Poke Cake – YEA! Banana, Peanut Butter and Bacon? I love Elvis, I'm just not sure about this? I've never tried bacon in dessert, although I know it's VERY popular. I might have to try this though, gotta try everything at least once, right? Thanks for making an awesome cake, AGAIN, and sharing on Best of the Weekend!

  6. Love your story about the Elvis sandwich! Funny how certain things that happen to us as kids create lasting memories like that. This cake looks delicious! Pinning!

  7. GGUURRLLL we need to talk , over a piece of cake! I grew up on Elvis, my mom and her sisters have TONS of memorabilia , records, cassettes and 8 tracks. Yep they do. My daddy would have loved this as well.
    Now to make it without peanut-butter, cause I'm allergic. I'll have to use my WOW butter. 😉

  8. Hi Jamie. Thanks for linking up this yummy poke cake and a few of your other delicious recipes to the Sweet Wednesday Link Party! Hmmm..peanut butter, banana and bacon, sounds interesting and it's probably really good too. Hope you're having a great week.

Don't get it}. 😉 Anyway, a BIG congrats – this was the most viewed link at our Best Of The Weekend party last week and will be featured across all three of our blogs when the party goes live at 8PM EST this eve.

  10. This looks like a delicious cake, if Elvis liked it I would too! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope you have a great weekend!
    Come Back Soon,

  11. Ok…I confess. I was nodding my head. I also confess that I'm not big on Elvis either. But I loved this story. Only you could turn an Elvis sandwich into a poke cake. One of a kind, girl!
    Thanks for linking with See Ya in the Gumbo. I spent some time out of town and we'll have this week's party up Monday night.

  13. I made this last night. It was good! Loved the bacon in the topping. You could probably used real bacon bits, but if you fry the bacon yourself you can size and chewiness. The cake was better for breakfast this morning than it was for dessert last night (even though I did let it chill before serving as directed). So, I think it's definitely a make ahead recipe which is nice. I didn't notice the peanut butter flavor in the cake all that much, though. So I am thinking you could make the cake as described on the box. Maybe make a double batch of glaze and put half on the baked cake when it comes out of the oven and then on top of the cool whip as the recipe describes. That would cut the total extra peanut butter in the recipe by 1/4 a cup and require 1 less egg. It was definitely an interesting and delicious flavor combination.

That would cut the total extra peanut butter in the recipe by 1/4 a cup and require 1 less egg. The "poke" part of the cake didn't work easily for me. I let the cake cool about 45 minutes before putting the pudding on. Maybe if you put it on when the cake was warm, it would be a little more "melty" and go in the holes more easily. Nevertheless, it was good and I will make it again.

  15. Hey Jamie! I saved this recipe many moons ago and forgot about it as usual. It popped up in my Facebook memories a few days ago and I got all the ingredients today. Gonna make it tomorrow while I am working from home. So excited! Anyone have any tweaks or suggestions?
