HOW TO ADD CONDENSED MILK TO BOX CAKE MIX
If you haven’t yet made a poke cake, there is no need to worry. They are super easy to make and only take a few simple ingredients.
First you’ll start by making your boxed cake mix. Once it’s finished baking, you’ll pull it out of the oven and poke holes all over the top of the cake.
Next is the most important step of all. You’ll pop open the top on your sweetened condensed milk and pour it evenly into all of the holes all over the cake.
Pop that baby in the refrigerator and let it do it’s magic.
That’s it. Once it’s been refrigerated overnight, you’ll add the rest of the ingredients and serve immediately.
INGREDIENTS FOR THESE POKE AND POUR CAKE RECIPES
The ingredients are easy. You’ll need to figure out what base boxed cake mix you’ll want to start with.
Ask yourself, do you want a chocolate cake? How about a lemon cake? Spice Cake is always yummy. Start by picking the “base” for your cake.
Next, you’ll need a container of Cool Whip. Not the spray kind, but the round tub. Let it thaw out in the refrigerator for a bit before you start to assemble your cake.
Don’t forget the sweetened condensed milk! You’ll need one can of that goodness once you poke holes in your cooked and cooled cake.
Finally, you’ll need to decide if you want caramel, candy, cookies, toffee, or cherries on top. The combinations of Better Than Anything Cake are endless.
