It is hard to know where a poke cake originates. The traditional cake of Mexico has been using the method for centuries to make its national cake, tres leche. Regardless of how the method got started it is a fun and fabulous way to infuse more flavor in to a cake, more color and contrast, different texture, ensure moistness, and create some fantastic cakes. For example, you can use a basic white cake and infuse it with color jello for a fun children’s birthday cake, or, as with tres leche, use a cake made with whipped egg whites that will really absorb liquids to add multiple kinds of milk. That makes an almost pudding type of cake that is rich and delicious. Or infuse a chocolate cake with melted chocolate for a real chocolate-y explosion in every bite. Puddings of almost every kind can be used to poke in to a cake. Choose your variations and have tons of fun.
