This Harry Potter Butterbeer Poke Cake is a magical, sweet, and comforting dessert every witch, wizard, and muggle will love!
When Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II came out back in 2011, I was of course excited to see it, but my heart also ached over the fact that this wonderful story that I grew up with was coming to a close. So obviously, I was overjoyed when they announced that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would be coming to theaters. And even more so when they announced it would be a 5-part story!
Now, butterbeer was a staple in the Wizarding World over in the UK, and maybe it won’t be as common in America, but we’really all still going crazy over it anyway. And maybe if we’re lucky, the new film will let us in on even more delicious foods from the Harry Potter Universe.
The only thing that I was bummed about, was that I’ve always gone to the midnight showings of the Harry Potter films, but this time, I’m in an airport in Tel Aviv waiting to go back home. Maybe I’ll be able to convince my us and to take me to the IMAX this weekend to see it, if I don’t just sleep straight through the weekend because I’m THAT exhausted from exploring Jerusalem all week at a breakneck pace!
This recipe was adapted from my Butterbeer Cupcakes that you guys have gone crazy for this past year. You’ve also been a little in love with my Kahlua Chocolate Poke Cake and I thought, hey, that could be a delicious concept. And I was right! You will love the soft sweet cake and creamy frosting loaded up with hints of butter, vanilla, butterscotch, and toffee!
