I have seen poke cakes all over the Internet lately, so I decided that I needed to make one. I am now hooked, poke cakes are so delicious and SO easy to make. It is a great way to add some flavor to a regular cake. Also I really liked how I can make this the night before and stick it in the refrigerator and it is all ready to serve the next day. This is especially important to me because one of the only chances I really get to spend in the kitchen is when my son goes to bed.
My favorite part about poke cakes is the taste. I love how the sweetened condensed milk and other flavors seep into the cake to make it incredibly moist and flavorful. Yum! I decided to make a poke cake for the 4th of July. This Red, White, and Blue Poke Cake is a great 4th of July treat with sweetened condensed milk, strawberry pie filling, and blueberry pie filling poured into the cake. I really loved the combination of the sweetened condensed milk with the strawberry and blueberry flavors in the cake.
I made this great cake using a chocolate cake box mix because I love the combination of fruit and chocolate, but feel free to use a white box cake mix if you prefer. Since the top of the cake is covered in whipped cream, I decided to decorate the top of the cake like an American Flag to make it even more festive. You can also make this for any occasion and forego the flag decoration on top.
This cake was so moist and I really liked the combination of the sweetened condensed milk and fruit with the chocolate cake. I hope you make this fabulous dessert for the 4th of July or it would be perfect for any occasion.
