Ingredients

Pineapple Poke Cake Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 20 oz crushed pineapple including liquid
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Poke Cake Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • fresh pineapple pieces optional
  • whipped cream optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F and then grease a 9x13 pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, crushed pineapple, baking soda, flour and salt, and mix until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared pan.
  • Bake the poke cake for 40-45 minutes, just until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool completely before moving to the next step.
  • Prep the topping while you're waiting for the cake to cool.
  • In a small saucepan, stir up the heavy cream, sugar, butter and vanilla and heat until nice and bubbly.
  • Once the cake is cooled, use a fork and poke holes all over the cake.
  • Pour the sauce all over the cake and allow the cake to sit for an hour or two to let the poke cake topping soak in.
  • Slice and top with whipped cream and fresh pineapple.
