Poke cakes are one of those desserts that everyone is happy to see on the table. Whether you're making it for your spouse and kids, or whether you're bringing it to a big group gathering, you can be sure that this pumpkin poke cake will satisfy. We love the combination of the creamy vanilla pudding with the rich spices in the cake. It's a combination that might go out of season, but it never goes out of style.
We also love that this recipe is super easy to make. It requires a little advanced planning, since you have to let the cake chill, but the hands on time is nice and short. This pumpkin poke cake is so easy to make that you won't even mind if your family asks you to make a second one!
