Poke Cakes

A homemade poke cake is a one-way ticket to an ultra-moist dessert. I love this Strawberry Poke Cake, this Chocolate Poke Cake, and this scandalously delicious Better Than Sex Cake!

Why is it called a poke cake? That’s half the fun! A poke cake starts out like your average sheet cake recipe. Only after it’s baked, you poke holes in the top with a wooden spoon.

Next, something delicious and liquidy like pudding, caramel – you name it – gets poured over the top. The topping seeps into the holes to make the cake super moist and flavorful. It’s honestly impossible to resist!
