Delicious Poke Cakes are just that—cakes that are poked and a wonderful syrup, sauce or topping is poured over the cake. Yummy, with extra flavor in every bite.
The first poke cake may have been white cake, baked from a mix, drizzled with colorful gelatin and frosted with whipped topping, but this recipe collection doesn’t stop there. Delicious sauces, toppings and syrups add incredible flavor in every bite. How about Cherry Cheesecake Poke Cake, topped with a creamy cheesecake layer, or a Candy Bar Poke Cake poked with caramel and topped with chopped candy bars, Applesauce Poke Cake poked with Maple–Cinnamon Sauce or Espresso Brownie Poke where brownies are poked with sweetened espresso then frosted with chocolate frosting. There is even a chapter featuring adult beverages which are poked and poured over delicious cakes, while on the other hand, what child wouldn’t be thrilled with a Blue Moon Poke Cake?
The cakes often begin with a cake mix as so many families are busy and want to keep the preparation easy. However, some families avoid mixes or wish to bake scratch cakes from basic ingredients. We included some easy, yet tasty, scratch recipes for common flavors so you can begin with the type of cake you prefer.
The traditional poke cake used a 9 x 13-inch sheet cake, but for added fun we have layer cakes and Bundt cakes and even individual sized “poke ‘n tote” cakes. There really is a flavor for everyone and the recipes are all current, inviting and thoroughly tested.
This book would make a luscious addition to your own collection—and would be an ideal gift. It is available now and you will find it at local bookstores and on-line.
