What Is A Poke Cake?
A Poke Cake is a cake that is poked full of holes to allow icing to slide on through. By “poking” the top of the freshly baked cake the syrup or cream runs down into those holes, settles in there real good and enhances the taste of the cake.

- Devil’s Food Cake Mix (The cheaper the better, we want a good old coarse cake)
- Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Caramel Topping
- Cool Whip
- Butterfinger Candy bar
How To Make Butterfinger Cake Step by Step
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. When it comes out, poke holes all in it with a fork or the handle of a wooden spoon, just like we did on the Pineapple Poke Cake. Don’t stop til it looks like a swarm of four toothed mosquitoes attacked!
Pour entire can of sweetened condensed milk and then pour caramel topping into bowl or glass and stir to combine.
Perfect Antidote For Negativity 😉
You know what negative people need? A BIG OLD BITE of this cake shoved right in their mouth to sweeten them up! When they come up for air, shove another bite in! Hey, come to think of it, if y’all have any negative or grouchy people in your life, you really should make them this cake today. Honestly, surprising them with this cake might just turn them around. It would at the very least cause them to take pause and look at you in a renewed light. Killing folks with kindness really does work. I swear it. I’ve tried it and been successful every single time.
How To Make It A Poke Cake:
Where was I? Oh yes. While the cake is still hot, pour the caramel/condensed milk all over the top and spread it around evenly. Then let it soak in. Oh my good lord almighty, this is gonna be good.
Sprinkle 3/4 of butterfinger crumbs over cake. Now let it cool a bit. I stick mine in the fridge at this point.
Once it is cooled, top with the whole thing of whipped cream and remaining butterfinger crumbs. Refrigerate.
Now, you can eat this now but it really and truly should get good and cold before you do.
Alright so go ahead and eat a bit now if you have to, but just promise me you’ll have another slice once it cools. You may even need to have two or three slices once it is good and cold so you can make sure you are tasting it fully as it would be quite rude to serve something to others which you have not adequately tasted – for their own good, of course.
- 1 box devil’s food cake mix
- 1 bottle caramel topping

- Prepare cake according to package directions. Immediately after removing cake from oven, poke several holes all over the top with a fork. Mix sweetened condensed milk and caramel together, pour over hot cake, spread it over the entire cake. Chill well. After cake has chilled completely, spread cool whip over the top and sprinkle crushed Butterfinger bar on top of cool whip.
