Delicious Poke Cakes: 80 Super Simple Desserts with an Extra Flavor Punch in Each Bite
Most of us have no idea what poke cakes are. Yet this interesting concept of baking relatively simple cakes with ease is the focus of Delicious Poke Cakes by Roxanne Wyss and Kathy Moore. The concept is simple: bake a cake (from scratch or from cake mixes), poke many holes on the finished cake and pour some flavorful sweet filling on top to fill the holes. This cookbook is perfect for cooks who wish to bake their own yet don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen. The first three recipes are simple from-scratch cakes, then the authors provide a large number of cakes to choose from, listing them in various categories (fruit, chocolate, bundt cake), and the book ends with fourteen frostings. The fillings to plug the holes can be anything pourable: pudding mixes, soft ice cream, syrup, condensed sweet milk, sauces. The recipe writing is good and easy to follow, and all the ingredients are readily available. Recipe layouts are generally user-friendly, and many recipes are illustrated with a photo. The tips and variations are good additions. This is a perfect book for bakers who want to bake their own using the simplest, easiest preparations.
