This easy Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries will make you the star of the picnic when you show up carrying it.
Ok, so a dessert topped with strawberries and blueberries this week is totally not original. This week as I was surfing Pinterest or Facebook, I saw so many delicious fruit topped recipes. Today I am jumping on that bandwagon with a cake topped with none other then strawberries and blueberries.
By now you know that I am slightly obsessed with poke cakes. It started with this Chocolate Coconut Cake and has been going strong with the Orange Creamsicle Poke Cake. Every time I post a poke cake recipe, I get emails and comments asking what exactly is a “poke” cake.
It’s exactly like it sounds.
You bake the cake and then poke the heck out of it with a fork or the end of a wooden spoon. Nothing complicated about it at all. After you have a cake full of holes, you drizzle it with sweetened condensed milk and top it with Cool Whip. Easy peasy right?
If you want to get a little bit crazy with the cake, you can add extra ingredients to the sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip. This particular cake gets an extra shot of strawberry from the strawberry ice cream topping in the milk. The topping also has pudding and cream cheese folded into the Cool Whip. It is seriously so delicious!
My oldest son is my best judge of desserts. He inhaled a piece of this in record time and declared it the best poke cake yet. I would have to agree with him too. So take our word for it and make one for your family this week. I think they will love it just as much as we did.
