Bring on the fresh flavors of spring with this Strawberry Lemonade Cake, which is actually a strawberry lemonade poke cake.
Strawberry Lemonade Cake – Poke Cake
Now before you get all excited thinking this is a made from scratch cake, let’s think about that for a minute. This is me, you guys. I like quick projects and I like cake mixes. But I also like to doctor up a cake mix to make it a little more homemade. I mean if this banana pudding poke cake is made with a mix, it’s all good!
So if you’re a cake purist, you may want to just skip ahead to my homemade buttermilk cupcakes that I actually did bake from scratch.
This cake is made with a strawberry cake mix, then you mix up a little lemonade concentrate with powdered sugar to pour over the top…. after you poke a few holes in the cake with a wooden spoon or a bamboo skewer.
I like that it’s a sheet cake because those are so easy! Easy to bake, easy to cut and of course super easy to eat!
I was going to make my own frosting, but I had 4 cans of vanilla frosting in the pantry and since I was on easy street, I went with it. I love the pink and the white! So spring like, even the taste!
You could garnish with fresh strawberries if you’d like, or just serve it up as is. Truth be told, you don’t even need the frosting. After you pour the lemonade mixture over the top, you’ll want to chill before serving.
Ack… my mouth is watering just typing all this.
