Raspberry Chocolate Poke Cake {recipe}

BAKING and eating and deciding what recipes ideas I want to make next have got to be on my TOP 10 list of favorite holiday pastimes! I can’t stay away from the recipes that are begging to be baked and one of them is this Raspberry Chocolate Poke Cake. Have you ever had Poke Cake? You probably have and may not have known it. There are tons of variations of Poke Cakes. Basically, it’s a cake that has holes poked into it after it’s been baked so that you can drizzle something sweet over the top of the holes thereby sealing an extra special something into the cake ensuring moisture like you wouldn’t believe. All of those “better than….” cakes? Poke Cakes. This Poke Care recipe is a variation on a Poke Cake recipe that uses White Chocolate Raspberry Creamer by International Delight® to add moisture and the chocolate raspberry flavor.

Here’s what’s to like about the recipe: it’s so incredibly moist that you might have a hard time sticking to just one piece. It tastes delicious and looks lovely all made up, so it’s a great cake to take to holiday gatherings. If you are short on time and don’t want to make the frosting, just use Cool Whip instead.
