Meet the poke cake. True to its name, it’s a cake you literally poke all over—then top with a gooey sauce that seeps into the holes, infusing the entire confection with extra flavor and moisture. Extremely satisfying to make, we dreamed up an autumnal version that involves a gently spiced cake, an apple cider caramel and fluffy, tangy cream cheese whipped cream on top.
Making caramel at home might sound daunting, but it’s not that difficult. Just keep in mind that you should have all your ingredients measured and ready before you begin (the process goes fast!) and that you must! not! stir! once the sugar syrup comes to a boil, or the mixture could crystallize. If you want to use store-bought caramel sauce, be our guest, but we promise the apple cider flavor is worth the effort.
