More About This Recipe
There's "The Elvis" – a sandwich of peanut butter, bacon and bananas – and now there's The Elvis Poke Cake. 

So, did you know that "The Elvis" is really a thing? It's a sandwich that has peanut butter, bananas and bacon on it. Apparently, Elvis liked it. We won't judge.

We're doing a sweet version – à la this Elvis Poke Cake we found at Love Bakes Good Cakes. We're talking yellow cake with peanut butter, bananas, banana pudding, whipped cream ... and bacon! YES!

Such a fun twist on a cake (easy too) and the banana pudding adds a little extra moistness throughout.

Let's just say the first bite had us all shook up!

So let's roll:

Start with a Betty Crocker yellow cake mix.

You're going to make up the batter ... and add peanut butter!

The peanut-buttery yellow batter looks like this. Time to bake it up.

When the cake is done baking, poke holes it in with a knife, like this, while it's still warm.

In a bowl, mix the banana pudding and milk until combined. 

Pour the banana mixture over the cake and into the holes.

Add a layer of sliced bananas on top.

Top it off with whipped cream.

Add crumbled bacon.

Then get out those blue suede shoes ... uh, I mean plates and forks!
