This Kahlua Chocolate Poke Cake is a deliciously boozy dessert that will get any party started!
My husband thinks I have a problem when it comes to making desserts. In fact, he thinks I have several, them being:
- I consume too many of them.
- I make too many of them.
- I tend to go a little over the top when I make them, like my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake for example.
But honestly, how could something like this Kahlua Chocolate Poke Cake be a problem? I just don’t see how it’s possible, especially if you like boozy desserts. And trust me, this one is boooooozy!
Every year on the 4th of July, I get put in charge of drinks and desserts and my mother in law always asks me to bring something patriotic… but I never listen. This year I served up this delicious cake and my chewy Monster Cookies. Nothing says freedom like a ridiculous dessert, am I right?
This cake is loaded up with 1 1/2 cups of Kahlua and definitely shouldn’t be served to the kiddos! There’s a 1/2 cup baked into the cake, a 1/2 cup soaked into the cake, and a 1/2 cup of it in the frosting, needless to say, it’s a feel-good kind of dessert!
If you’ve never had a poke cake, it’s basically a sheet cake that’s been baked and then had holes poked into it and had some sort of liquid poured over it, in this case, Kahlua and sweetened condensed milk. The cake absorbs all of the liquid and makes for a super moist and delicious sweet treat.
If you’re into boozy desserts, you’re going to go crazy over this cake. It’s rich, sweet, and hits all the right notes. And when you’ve had one of those weeks where you just need a drink and some chocolate, this cake will save you.
