I love poke cakes!! I recently discovered their fabulousness last year and have been addicted ever since. There are so many different varieties you can make, any combo you can think of you can make into a poke cake. I feel they are the perfect spring/summer dessert because they are cool and creamy and they travel perfectly to any get together, bbq or potluck you go to.
They are always are big hit and get devoured whenever I make one so today I wanted to share my latest poke cake creation, Tiramisu Poke Cake.
I was inspired to make this poke coke since my grandma absolutely loves Tiramisu and I always have such a hard time finding ladyfingers so I always have to substitute them somehow like making a Tiramisu trifle with pound cake and so on. I think this poke cake fits the bill and I love it!! It is delicious, creamy from the whipped cream and cream cheese layer, sweet from the yellow cake layer soaked with sweetened coffee.
This cake is so insanely delicious and you can add a twist by reducing the amount coffee and replacing it with some of your favorite creamer so they possibilities are endless there!
