Double Chocolate Toffee Poke Cake

Double Chocolate Toffee Poke Cake

Dripping chocolatey,  the cake is already moist - add Toffee Sauce and you have a double winner !

I was craving a moist, toffee or caramel kind of poke cake for weeks now.  Finally, I decided to come up with something myself, as, for once, I just could not find anything on the internet or in any recipe book.

You know that feeling, no matter how many recipes you look at, it's not right, not what you want !  Over the last couple of years, I have come to realise that when I'm in the mood for something specific, best is to make the recipe up myself.

There has been total write-offs, never to be repeated again dishes which started out this way, but many made the cut and I am happy to say, this is one of the best Poke Cakes I have had in a long time.


15 servings

1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix + the ingredients as per the box
3/4 cup Chocolate Chips  {the slivered kind works best}
1 1/2 cups Toffee Sauce   {any brand}
1 cup Fresh Cream
1 TB Caster Sugar
Any kind of Chocolate pieces to sprinkle over
Extra Toffee Sauce, for serving

1.) Prepare the Cake Mix, adding the Chocolate Chips last and bake using a 20 x 30cm oven dish, as per the instructions on the box - let cool completely.
2.) Use the handle of a wooden spoon and poke holes  all over the baked cake - fill the holes with 1 cup of Toffee Sauce - spread the remaining Sauce over the top.
3.} Beat the Cream until stiff peaks form - add in the Caster Sugar and beat just enough to combine - spoon over the layer of Toffee Sauce.
4.) Sprinkle the Chocolate pieces over the whipped Cream - chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Serve with extra Toffee Sauce drizzled over  {keep in mind that this is a super sweet treat!}.

Enjoy !
