Poke cake is by far one of the most fun desserts and has been around for quite a long time. There is so much you can do when it comes to poke cakes whether it’s combining different flavours together or just playing with one flavour. Poke cakes are versatile and can be made using any filling such as pudding, caramel, mousse, custard, sweetened condensed milk, Jello, etc. When you poke holes in the cake make sure to reach the skewer all the way to the bottom of the cake and try to make as many holes as you possibly can. You do want the pudding to be more liquid when you pour it so that it seeps well into the holes. If you have a hard time getting the pudding into the holes, try using a short Turkey baster or a spatula to press the pudding down into the holes.

To bake the cake in this recipe, you can use a store-bought cake mix or if you prefer making your cake from scratch, do so by all means. There are many amazing cake recipes on how to bake a cake from scratch. You can pretty much choose your own flavoured cake like white cake, yellow cake or even chocolate cake. A healthier option in the place of regular cake would be to substitute it either with store-bought gluten-free cake or sugar-free angel food cake.

There are many pineapple health benefits that come from the enzymes present in a pineapple, and has proven to provide benefits like anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and digestive aid. Other important pineapple health benefits are vitamin C and A. Coconut flakes have a natural sweetness that adds a distinct flavor and gives dense texture to desserts. A healthier option to use in dessert recipes would be to opt for unsweetened coconut. It is important to know that coconut nutrition plays a vital role in promoting lauric acid to the body, which is known for being antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Besides the several health benefits that come from unsweetened coconut nutrition, it is also low in carbs and loaded with fiber.
