Pumpkin poke cake – the perfect desserts for the holidays. If you love classic pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, then you will surely love this upgraded version of the unbelievably moist Pumpkin cake filled with homemade white chocolate pudding.
Basic recipe for the cake is probably well known to you. It is one of the most popular recipes, especially because it is made very easily and the cake is very moist and flavorful. The taste of pumpkin spiced with cinnamon and cream cheese frosting are just made for each other 🙂
Although people say that “you don’t change a winning combination”, I still decided to make a step further and put a little change into this yummy cake. A little white chocolate filling can’t do any harm ;-). I have seen many times already that pumpkin and white chocolate go together brilliantly. I don’t know if you remember my recipes from last year for White Chocolate Pumpkin Cups and White Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles?
First I thought that I might stir some white chocolate chips into the cake batter and with that add a little crunchy texture to this soft cake, but then, I changed my mind. It will be a very creamy and moist poke cake filled with white chocolate pudding, which will, I hope, satisfy all tastes like all chocolate poke cakes that I have made before.
So, with coming holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving Pumpkin Poke Cake is a great idea for dessert after a holiday lunch or dinner. The recipe is very simple, and for a real homemade cake, from beginning to end, you won’t need much more time then when you use boxed cake mix and canned frosting.
If you ask me, I’m not much of a fan of pumpkin treats, maybe this is hard to believe for you because of all the recipes I have put on this blog. When it comes to fall flavors, I’d rather have a combination of apple, cinnamon and caramel. But, this pumpkin poke cake even made me change my mind 🙂 The cake is incredibly moist and soft, it melts in your mouth and the taste of pumpkin isn’t even the overflowing one. What is your favorite fall flavor?
