The Red Velvet Poke Cake is made with a red velvet cake blend with a creamy cheesecake filling and condensed milk on the top.
The term “Poke Cake” refers to a cake that has been punctured or pierced with a cylindrical tool (for example: a wooden spoon handle), and later bathed with some kind of liquid or cream, which are absorbed by the cake, producing a completely humid and juicy cake.
There is a great variety of combinations to make an exquisite “poke cake”. It is usually a rectangular or square cake and it is customary to combine colors between the fillings and the dough, and it is commonly covered with a decorative cream in order to give a more colorful and provocative aspect to the cake.
Having said all this, I want to animate you to prepare this delicious “Red Velvet Poke Cake” and delight yourself with the results.
Prepare previously all the ingredients. Preheat the oven at 180°C /350°F. In a medium sized bowl add the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa. Mix them all, sieve and preserve. Prepare a 13 x9 in baking tray, oil and flour. In a second bowl proceed to beat up, with an electric mixer in medium speed, the butter and the sugar for about 5 minutes. Now proceed to add the eggs one by one, without stopping beating up. Add now the coloring, sour cream, vinegar, milk and a vanilla trickle.
When all is well mixed add little by little the dry ingredients prepared before, and keep beating up until all the ingredients are integrated. Pour the mixture in the tray oiled and floured previously, and bake for about 40 minutes. (In order to know if cake is ready, introduce a stick or knife. When it comes out clean, the cake is ready).
With the cake still warm, proceed to make many holes with the handle of a wooden spoon. Cover all the cake with the condensed milk. When the cake is completely cold, cover with whipped cream. Shave the chocolate bar with a potato peeler and drop over the whipped cream. Serve and Enjoy.
