Red, White & Blueberry Poke Cake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + cooling Bake: 25 min. + chilling
Five star rating all the way ! Just made this cake and it turned out beautifully as well as delicious. The only deviations I made were adding additional powdered sugar to the frosting and keeping the pressed berries that the recipe states to discard. I spread the pressed strawberries and blueberries on their respective layers the next day after refrigeration overnight with the cake layers then frosted. Also, I would note that the recipe states to beat the heaving whipping cream until soft peaks form. I don't do my frosting this way, it tends to be too runny. Definitely beat til stiff peaks form and you'll have less likelihood of the layers sliding. Happy Fourth !
This is the best cake. We make it every year for Independence Day. We use Angel Food cake instead and layer that. It's great
loved the poke cake recipe my family enjoyed I used raspberries instead just as delicious
A standard poke cake, with a twist. The addition of the fresh strawberries and blueberries add a nice touch. Also, well worth it to make your own whip cream icing so you can make it as sweet or not sweet as you like. To keep your cake layers from slipping(and this goes for any layer cake) simply insert a wooden skewer cut to size through the middle of both cakes.
This shall henceforth be known as my Fail Cake. I was going to lactose free so used almond milk in the cake and Lactose-Free Frosting instead of Whipping Cream. The blueberry syrup was too thin and the strawberry syrup was too thick and neither filled the holes; the bottom edge of the cake was soggy; and no matter how thick I made the frosting it slid off of the jello-skinned cake. Oh well, it was a nice try.
I have used a 13x9 pan, poke and pour the blue gelatin, chill, then poke and pour the red. Top with whipped cream, no worries about sliding layers.
This was awesome!! I made this for the kids for a 4th of July cook out and I couldn't keep the adults out of it! Now I have to make 2 for this year.
I made this for our 4th of July last year and still remember it 15 mo later... cool and refreshing... really terrific!
I made this for our 4th of July barbeque. It was a huge hit. Several people said it was the best cake they had ever had. It was delicious!
I made this for a 4th of July BBQ and it pleased a couple of hard to please children. It tasted great and the syrups are well worth the effort. I made it with the heavy cream and had no issues with the cake falling down or sliding. Just gotta make sure to beat the cream and sugar enough :)
