In case you haven’t tried a poke style cake before, you need to try one soon! After the cake is done baking, you’ll poke a bunch of holes in the cake with a fork or a knife and then drizzle it with delicious goodness that soaks into the cake to make it perfectly moist throughout and extra delicious. This one is soaked with sweetened condensed milk and chocolate syrup. (Is there anything better than that???)
