More About This Recipe
Poke cakes are a classic dessert, but add the twist of cherry brandy and you've got a sweet treat with a kick!
Today we’re taking the classic poke cake to another level. Usually it’s just the cake with some pudding and the artificial whipped topping. We’re going with red velvet, cheesecake pudding, and fresh whipped cream. Oh, and uh – there’s booze in the pudding. (Maraschino cherry juice would be a perfect substitute).
I let the cake sit overnight in the fridge, which isn’t really necessary, but it helps the cake and pudding become a little better friends. You just want to make sure the cake is cooled completely before you put the whip cream on there.
Fresh whipped cream is one of my favorites when it comes to cake toppers. You could totally add a splash more of kirsch if you wanted to.
Serve in slices with a maraschino cherry on top!
