I usually only make a red velvet dessert about once a year, usually for Christmas or Valentine’s Day, but this cake reminded me that I need to do it more often.
It’s fast, easy, and it’s a poke cake so it’s automatically super soft and moist which is the only way I want my cake.
Poke cakes get their name because after baking you poke holes in the cake and drizzle in sweetened condensed milk and sometimes caramel sauce, but with this one I just used sweetened condensed milk. I’ve made plenty of others including chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, pumpkin, smores, turtle, and more.
Anytime a cake is infused with sweetened condensed milk, it’s going to be juicy and tender and this one definitely is.
