I have no idea why but here lately I have been on a baking kick. Now if you know me at all then you know that baking really isn’t my thing. I think the thing with baking is that it’s truly scientific and you have to get all of your measurements correct or it’s going to be a big, fat failure. I am more of a throw it all together and not measure anything kind of cook. Casseroles? Yes. Pasta meals? Yes. Soups? Yes. I can make all of those things in my sleep. Baking things? I’m pretty hit or miss on. HA! So when I tell you that I made the most amazing Butterfinger Poke Cake that you have ever tasted in your whole, entire life then you better listen up because I do not use those words lightly. HA!
Ahhh poke cakes. I have a special place in my heart (and my stomach!) that is just for poke cakes. There is just something about poking all of those little holes in a freshly baked cake and filling them all the the nectar of the Gods (sweetened condensed milk). Am I right? I recently redid my Coconut Cream Poke Cake and it was in that very moment that I realized how much I was holding out on you guys by not telling you about my second favorite poke cake recipe…Butterfinger!
I mean just take a look at all of this sinful yumminess…
…and it tastes even better than it looks!! Trust me on this guys.
PS- do Butterfingers remind anyone else of Bart Simpson? Or am I really just that old? HA! Weirdly enough, I also associate Dr Peppers with Bart too. I really need to quit associating my food with cartoon characters.
One of the things I love most about a poke cake is how moist they are! Yes, I said moist. Gross. LOL! But really though, keeping them covered in the fridge is a must and I think I and this cake in there for a solid week and it tasted yummy until the last piece!
And I may or may not have just admitted to eating an entire cake…OOPS!!
And because this cake wasn’t sinful enough on it’s own I drizzled my plat with chocolate syrup and caramel syrup before plating it. Cause I’m FANCY y’all. Or something like that…
Before I forget I found a bag of Butterfinger pieces in the baking aisle at my local WalMart that I used to top this cake with. If you can’t find those you can always go old school and just buy a couple of Butterfinger candy bars and beat them up, it all tastes the same!
The recipe is below for those who want to try it…
