...baked a cake! Not just any cake - a POKE cake. A friend shared her recipe and it is plain and simple and basic. That's the kind of recipe I like! OH! I forgot sweet! SWEET!
There are many recipes "out there" for poke cakes, but this is what we like best!
click on image to enlargeThe cake has been baked and poked and covered with sweet mixture.
I covered it with pineapple that was processed very finely and drained.
It has been tasted and shared. In fact, we had an unexpected surprise visitor drive up at lunchtime today. Alvin, age 87, used to be my employer at a personal care boarding home, and he was THE cook for over thirty three residents. I ate many delicious meals when I worked there. I was so happy to see him and serve this cake while talking over old times.
Here is the recipe:
One yellow cake mix
One vanilla instant pudding mix
Mix the cake mix as instructed and add the dry pudding mix.
One can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk. 14 oz
One can cream of coconut. 15 oz
After the cake is baked, immediately, while hot, punch holes in top and pour mix into holes.
Let set until cool. Cover top with drained crushed pineapple (optional)
Put in refrigerator overnight.
Then add cool whip and coconut flakes or pineapple chunks (optional) on top to serve.
