Over the past few months I have seen these baked creations called Poke Cake pop up all over my Pinterest and Facebook feeds and to be honest I did not know what they were. Like a good blogger and foodie , I researched them to find out what all the hoopla was about. In essence, you bake a cake, poke some holes over the top of it and then prepare a pudding, jelly, etc. that you pour over the top and that goodness seeps into the cake itself.
I decided to give the Poke Cake a try and created this Chocolate Pudding Poke Cake. It really is so easy.
Bake a vanilla cake according to the cake mix directions.
Let the cake cool.
Poke holes in top (good size holes)
Prepare chocolate pudding according to package instructions.
Pour over cake.
I frosted mine with a milk chocolate frosting.
Boy is this cake moist and delicious! It is even kid tested and they love it. Be sure to tell me if you have a favorite Poke Cake recipe- I am dying to try all the different versions.
