I love poke cakes, and this is one adult creation that is simple and easy yet elegant enough for company.

  • Beat eggs in a bowl using an electric mixer until frothy. Add sugar and continue to beat until thick and creamy, 4 to 5 minutes. Add liqueur and vanilla extract; mix to combine. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until just combined; do not overbeat. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool, about 1 hour.

  • Combine sweetened condensed milk and liqueur in a bowl and stir until well combined. Poke holes throughout the cooled cake using a skewer or toothpick. Slowly pour sauce over the cake. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate until sauce is absorbed, at least 2 hours.

  • Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl using an electric mixer until frothy. Add confectioners' sugar and gelatin mix gradually, continuing to beat topping until stiff peaks form.

  • Serve poke cake with whipped cream topping and sliced strawberries.

Seemed like a lot of liquid to pour on top. I have never made a poke cake before so have nothing to compare to. It was also very strong alcohol tasting. Read More
