More About This Recipe

  • My family is a camping family. You know what I mean – we’ve been all over the country’s state parks, and we’ve got all the bells and whistles when it comes to camping gear to prove it: Percolator (for coffee, the Elixir of Life), chairs, stools, skewers, camping stove, grill top, lanterns, a lifetime supply of bug spray, a pop-up trailer that now only stays up by a 2-by-4 and very sloooooow, cautious steps inside… You get the idea. We’ve camped so much, our stuff is worn in and well-loved. The same goes for our usual camping menu, which consists of meat and cheese sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, watermelon, eggs, bacon and s’mores. Lots and lots of s’mores. And then some more s’mores. While I wouldn’t trade my family’s love of camping for anything, I wouldn’t mind if we upped the ante a bit when it comes to what we eat out in the wilderness. And this S’mores Poke Cake is a perfect place to start! This cake is the easiest. This cake is the tastiest. This cake tells normal, boring ol’ s’mores who’s boss. And all it takes are a few simple ingredients to make your new favorite dessert, whether out on the trail or in your backyard. Get ready to STUFF your pie hole. Or s’mores hole. Whatever you call it.
