Rich Devil’s food cake, soaked with Guinness and condensed milk and frosted with whipped mascarpone frosting. Hello St.Patrick’s Day!!!
I have never made a poke cake and after seeing them on Pinterest i figured why not make one. A poke cake starts off with a baked cake, then holes are made in it using a straw , followed by a sauce or pudding poured over it so it seeps into the holes and finally frosted with a whipped frosting.
This poke cake started off with a baked Devil’s food cake. The cake has both cocoa powder and melted chocolate in it, very chocolatey. Devil’s food cake is simply beautiful, with a moist tender crumb. The recipe is quick and easy.
For the filling I mixed together condensed milk and Guinness. I mixed together half a can of condensed milk and a quarter cup guinness for the filling. I used 3/4 of the mixture for the cake. Pour more of the mixture over the cake if you want. Or enjoy the rest of the mixture as a drink splashed over ice. I may not like Guinness on it own, but Guinness mixed with condensed milk is yummy. Poke holes in the cake and pour the filling over the cake. I used a straw to make the holes.
For the frosting I whipped together luxurious mascarpone cheese with double cream for about 2 minutes until it thick like firmly whipped cream. The mascarpone frosting was spread over the devil’s food cake and sprinkled with chocolate shaving.
Best of all it is an easy and simple cake to make. Plus it is absolutely moist and delicious. Make this for a St Patrick’s Day celebration or just make cos you want to.
