WHAT IS A POKE CAKE?
For my friends who don’t know what a poke cake is, it lives true to its name. It’s usually a cake baked in a 9″x13″ cake pan that is poked with holes and poured with a liquid like pudding, sweetened condensed milk, jellies, jams, or chocolate to name a few! It is a moist and rich cake that has flavor in each and every bite.
Poke cakes have always been one of our go-to desserts. They are a potluck favorite that go over so well at dinners, parties and holidays. And whats better than having a zillion different recipe flavor combinations that you can enjoy! I mean come on, the possibilities are endless.
