Inspiration can turn up anywhere. For me, almost anything can spark an idea for a recipe, it might be a movie, tv show, a photo in a magazine, heck it might be a conversation. The inspiration for this poke cake actually started out at work. We were discussing our fellow co-worker’s, love/adoration for poke cakes.  Seriously, she could win the award for biggest fan of poke cakes….if there was such a thing.
However, I had heard of Poke cake before but I’d never made one. (I mean of course I’d heard of it, I’ve seen it all over the food blogger scene before).

Anyhow, I went home that evening and told Dan all about it and then pick up what I needed from the store the very next day. After work, I came home and got to work on my Coconut Cream Poke Cake! Now I did use white cake mix for my Coconut Cream Poke Cake
I also used canned condensed milk (Let it out!  GASP, I know, I committed a huge Food Blogger Sin…..BUT.. I’m ok with that)  : )
But you know what,  if you want to make sweetened condensed milk from scratch, I have a recipe for that here !

Now, who wants a slice?
