Mocha Poke Cake

By  | 

This Mocha Poke Cake is rich, moist, chocolate, and topped with a whipped coffee frosting. For every family birthday, if the goods aren’t ordered from our favorite bakery, then they’re made by me. I like to personalize everyone’s cake or cupcakes to be something they’ll love. Last year I made my mom these Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cupcakes and I made my brother this Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cake, which everyone fought over. My dad is a huge chocolate and coffee guy and I wanted to make something that was easy and delicious! This Mocha Poke Cake was just the thing!

I love poke cakes! this Sea Salt Caramel Carrot Poke Cake was one of my most popular recipes last year! I think that’s a good indication that everyone loves a good poke cake. Poke cakes are so easy to whip up, you just bake it up in a 9 x 13 dish, poke some holes in it and pour hot fudge or sweetened condensed milk all over, and then finish her off with a luscious whipped frosting. Top it off with extra drizzle and you’ve got what is probably the easiest and most delicious cake ever! Not bad, eh?
