I’ve seen poke cakes popping up in my Facebook feed for a while now but I haven’t actually made one myself until this weekend. I’m not sure why I waited so long, I guess they seemed a little silly.
After finally making one myself, I now see the error of my ways.
As the name implies a poke cake is a cake that you poke holes in.
So why poke holes in a cake?
- It’s a fantastic way to incorporate sauces, such as caramel.
- Flavors are more evenly spread throughout the cake. Instead of just a layer on top.
- It creates tasty little pockets of flavor.
To make a poke cake, simply bake a cake as you normally would. Once it’s done, use a knife or the end of a wooden spoon to create your hole, pour your desired sauce over the top, and then frost.
What better way to try out a poke cake than to make one inspired by delicious candy turtles!
Chocolate, pecans, and caramel might be one of the best combinations ever!
This rich chocolaty cake has just the right amount of sweetness and crunch!
This vegan turtle cake would be a huge hit at any party.
