So, what’s a poke cake?

True to its name, it’s a cake that you poke holes in after baking. The holes are then filled with a liquid or filling — like condensed milk, pureed fruit, chocolate cream, or pudding — to infuse extra flavor into every bite. Here are 15 ways to make one.

1. Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake


This version uses caramel-sweetened condensed milk — but regular caramel sauce would work too. Recipe here.

3. Cinnamon Carrot Poke Cake

Made from scratch and infused with a buttermilk glaze. Recipe here.

5. Red Velvet Poke Cake
