The kids always have so much fun poking the holes when I make a poke cake. And let’s be honest, I kind of think it’s fun too!

Because almost all of these recipes use a boxed cake mix, I don’t need to run to the store to get tons of crazy ingredients. And I almost always have a few boxes of cake mix in the pantry. Even if I don’t, I can always make one super easy.

And I usually eat my feelings (are there people that don’t?) and cake is always the best stress snack. Who’s with me?

I hope you and your family enjoy these poke cake recipes as much as mine does! And if you still more ideas, check out these icebox cake recipes.
