This cake is a great way to finish off your Memorial Day feast next weekend. This is a variation of other poke cakes on the blog. Like the others, this cake is easy to make and tastes great. It is best to make this cake at least a day before you want to serve it. It gets better the longer it sits in the refrigerator. It takes a lot of will power not to just dive into the cake, but trust me. It is worth the wait!

As I said, this cake is super easy to make. Start with a box of strawberry cake mix. Prepare the cake according to the package directions and bake in a 9×13-inch baking dish. While the cake is baking whisk together strawberry ice cream topping and sweetened condensed milk. Remove the cake from the oven. Poke holes all over the cake and pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake and let it cool completely. Once the cake has cooled, top it with fresh whipped cream and fresh strawberries.

  1. I used strawberry jam in place of the ice cream topping, and store bought cool whip instead of the whipping cream and everyone loved this cake! It was delicious and easy! Thanks for the great recipe!

  2. Not sure it's going to be that sweet. But you could always use some greek yogurt in the mix to put a richness and a bit of tartness back in.

  3. I'm with Shell…..looks yummy, but made my teeth hurt just looking at the ingredients:))) Maybe evaporated milk would work.

  4. This looks yummmmmy! but is it too sweet with the sweetened condensed milk? Could you mix the strawberry topping with just evaporated milk instead?
