Chocolate Poke Cake is quadruple chocolate treat-rich chocolate cake infused with delicious mixture of melted chocolate and sweetened condensed milk, topped with chocolate whipped cream and chocolate chips.
Although all of us food bloggers are gasping for air watching the fantastic photos of decadent layered cakes, sometimes it is really necessary to have such a cake on your table in a very short time. If you have ever been in a situation like that, there is no better solution then a quick, but a very delicious poke cake. Your guests will enjoy the slices of the cake, and you won’t have to spend hours and hours in the kitchen.
And so, you may think that I’m a master in making poke cakes because I’m telling you all this, but the truth is that I just recently came to the conclusion that from about 100 recipes on my blog, none of them are for this very popular cake. The reason is not because I’m not used to making poke cake, but because I often make it for guests at the last minute and they eat it almost to the last piece, so there is rarely anything to take a picture of and post on the blog 🙂
Since the decision of what to bake is made, the only thing left is to choose a taste, since you can make poke cake with any flavor you want. But, as it should be with a blog that has the word “chocolate desserts” in it’s name, then it was a “no brainer” to make the first cake of this kind a Chocolate Poke Cake.
Maybe you are expecting a big story now, but everything about poke cake is so simple that after a few sentences, you will already be able to begin baking! As a cake base, there is the moist chocolate cake, poked, filled with chocolate and sweetened condensed milk filling. Since the cake I’m making today is extremely chocolaty, the whipped cream is mixed with cocoa,too and for the complete chocolate enjoyment, in the end, there are chocolate chips, and many of them. Maybe you will think that I have gone too far with them, but the chocolate chips do not just complete the taste of the cake, but they also give a great crunchy texture to the moist, creamy cake.
And what else to say? No sooner than clapping your hands, there is the Chocolate Poke Cake smiling from the table and if you ever thought that a quick cake can’t be delicious, one bite will change your opinion. But, caution! If you are a food blogger, first take photos, then eat 🙂
