What’s a poke cake?

Poke cakes are a kind of recipe that uses a boxed cake mix and then in order to make sure the cake stays moist, flavorful, and packed with fun in every bite we’re going to poke holes in it with a straw or a wooden spoon handle.

Once the holes are poked in the baked cake we fill them up with delicious filling! Making Twix cake with this method is great because the chocolate, caramel, and other deliciousness ends up all the way throughout the cake!

Poke cakes are great to make with kids. They love helping to poke the holes and fill them in with delicious sauces and fillings!

Why is this called Twix cake?!

Ingredients needed for this easy Twix cake recipe:

To make this easy poke cake recipe we will be starting with a boxed cake mix…as usual! We’re all about elevating boxed cake mixes to a new level of glory.

Honestly, I don’t know why making things from scratch is praised like some huge accomplishment or special feat. I love the ease and simplicity of having all the ingredients for a cake, brownies, or cookies, already measured out and ready to go.

Kitchen Essentials for Poke Cakes:

If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

For cakes in particular you will need a rectangular cake pan. You can use glass pyrex style ones or even casserole baking dishes!
