  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (butter, egg whites, milk, vanilla extract) for the white cake layer. 
  • In a separate larger bowl, mix together the dry ingredients for the white cake layer (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt). 
  • Mix together the dry and wet ingredients to form the cake batter. Use an electric mixer to make this easier, if you have one.
  • Spray a 9" x 13" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Pour cake batter into baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow cake to cool until it can be safely handled.
  • Using the back of a spoon, or other utensil, poke cake all over to form holes. 
  • Spread the chocolate pudding on top of the cake, being sure to get the pudding down into the holes you just made.
  • Next, mix together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Mix in the unsweetened chocolate and 2 tablespoons of milk. Beat by hand or with a mixer, until frosting consistency is formed. Spread evenly over the cake.
  • Mix the whipped topping with the chocolate syrup and chocolate chips. Spread this over the top of the cake.
  • Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the chocolate poke cake for garnish. And top with a drizzle of white chocolate sauce if desired.
