Fruit Cocktail Caramel Poke Cake is gooey and so syrupy ! Serve this cake cold in Summer and warm in Winter with a dollop of ice-cream

Today’s recipe is fruity and so moist with the caramel sauce. Even though the poking is done with a fork, I think this Fruit Cocktail Caramel Poke Cake deserves the “poke”part.

It is such an easy recipe, and if you like really, really sweet treats, this cake is for you !

You can serve the cake warm or cold. Warm with ice-cream and cold with, not too sweet, whipped cream. This makes the recipe a year round favorite in our house !

Seeing as you use canned fruit, this cake is definitely not seasonally bound.

The sauce totally drench the cake, but slicing into servings is a breeze. When serving warm, wait a few minutes before slicing.

However, when serving cold, it is much easier to slice and keep shape.
