So, I have never really been a fan of desserts with nuts. I don’t really know why. I love pecans, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, and all of those on their own, but I have always been one of those people who thinks that nuts ruin a dessert. I can remember my mom always loving sweets with nuts, and I would be so grossed out by them. This Butter Pecan Poke Cake though, it has been a game changer for me! I am not sure if it is this dessert in particular, or maybe it is just because of my age and I have finally reached the phase of my life when I am into this kind of thing. Whatever the case may be, I am okay with it. No one else in my house feels the same way as me, and that means I get all of this fantastic deliciousness all to myself!
Here are some tips for making my Butter Pecan Poke Cake:
- I use a boxed butter pecan cake mix for this recipe simply because of convenience and because, sometimes, the boxed stuff is just as good. If you would prefer to make a cake from scratch, go for it! I am sure it will absolutely delicious!
- I like to use cool whip as the topping for this poke cake, but you could use refrigerated whipped topping or even homemade. I do feel like the cool whip holds it shape for a lot longer than other whipped toppings, but any of them will taste fantastic.
- I drizzle about 1/3 cup of caramel sauce on the cake while it is still hot (before the whipped topping goes on) and I also like to drizzle a little on the finished product simply for looks. You can leave extra drizzle on top off, and it will not affect your end result.
- PLEASE! Do not forget to store this in the refrigerator! The whipped topping needs to be kept cool for safety.
These are the ingredients you will need for this cake:
- Butter pecan cake mix
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Toffee bits
- Caramel sauce
- Frozen whipped topping
