This Chocolate Devotion Poke Cake is a chocolate lover’s dream come true! Plus, it starts with a boxed cake mix, so it’s extremely easy to make, but it tastes completely homemade! It’s utterly divine!
It’s my birthday! I’ll spare you a conversation about how old I’m getting, but I will share a yummy dessert recipe with you!
I love birthdays, especially when they’re not mine, so I don’t have to get older! 🙂 All kidding aside, I really enjoy a good excuse to celebrate and eat chocolate cake! I always say that calories don’t count on your birthday! And you can bet I’ll be taking full advantage of that today with this cake.
I wouldn’t be true to myself if I wasn’t stuffing my face with chocolate goodness on my special day. So that’s what I’ll be doing.
This one is just oozing with goodness! Every little nook, cranny, and crevice is filled with delightful chocolate! First you make a chocolate cake. Then you poke holes in it and fill those with a sweetened condensed milk chocolate sauce! Then you proceed to slather it in chocolate buttercream frosting. And then, because that’s still not enough chocolate, you sprinkle it with mini chocolate chips or chocolate shavings.
I’m not typically a fan of cakes made from a boxed mix. But I do love doctoring the mixes up a bit to make them taste like a million bucks while still being fuss-free! I added sour cream and buttermilk to this one, plus melted butter in place of the oil. The sour cream and buttermilk really make for a moist and tender crumb and boost the flavor! It tastes just like my favorite ever homemade chocolate cake, but with a fraction of the effort!
I want to enjoy this for all of my un-birthdays, it’s so phenomenal! Quadruple the chocolate and total bliss in every bite!
I really hope you won’t wait for the next family birthday to enjoy this incredible cake! It’s chocolate heaven!
