That is a very good question, my friends. A Poke cake, is a cake that has been poked, and some sort of gelatin sauce has been drizzled over it. The drizzle seeps into the holes, and saturates the interior of the cake. At least, that's what I've heard.
I get really excited about raspberry-lemon things, especially martinis, but this is truly a brilliant idea for a cupcake. I'm making a lemon cupcake, with a raspberry drizzle, and topped with a lemon icing. Exciting, yes?
Here's a link to the Poke-cake recipe I was using: Raspberry Poke Cake Recipe
- Betty Crocker Lemon Cake Mix (plus the eggs, oil, and water) (yields about 24 cupcakes)
- 1 Box Raspberry Jell-O.
- Fresh Raspberries
- 1 Lemon (sliced)
- Powdered Sugar
- Lemon Juice (fresh squeezed or bottle)
- Cupcake liners
