Tiramisu Poke Cake {guest post Parrish}

Hey yall!! I am super excited to guest posting for my best bloggy friend today! I am sharing this Tiramisu Poke Cake because there is nothing better in the summer than poke cakes especially one with a coffee jolt!

Tiramisu Poke Cake, It is delicious, creamy from the whipped cream and cream cheese layer, sweet from the yellow cake layer soaked with sweetened coffee.

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!

This poke cake is so easy to make! Just bake and cool a yellow cake mix, and poke it all over with a fork.Poke Cake

    I was so intrigued to find out what a Poke Cake is – so simple! And who can resist a tiramisu? (not me!)
