Caramel Pecan Poke Cake

(12 Votes)
30 Min

Ooey gooey Caramel Pecan Poke Cake starts with a packaged cake mix, but still has that old fashioned “from-scratch” taste that everyone craves.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) box chocolate cake mix, prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (14-ounce) can caramel topping
  • 1 (16-ounce) container coconut pecan frosting
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Pour batter into baking dish.
  2. Bake 28 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes, then poke holes in top of cake using a wooden spoon handle.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping. Pour mixture slowly over cake while still warm.
  4. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight. Spread frosting over cake, sprinkle with pecans, and serve.

Feel free to use your favorite frosting flavor!

This is really good, but I added a little almond extract to the cake mix to boost flavor. I can say this is good and I don't like chocolate cake . I used a fried turkey injector without the needle to fill each of the poke holes and then poured the rest of the sauce over the cake. Also heated the frosting in the microwave a bit to make the spreading easier. My grandkids are also crazy about this cake. a littl

This sounds so good I could make it for Easter with a big scope of ice cream.

Absolutely fantastic with a Butter Pecan cake mix also! And I topped it with a thin layer of cool whip and chopped pecans.

This cake is wonderful, whole family loves it.

This sounds delicious. I can feel my blood sugar rise just reading the recipe! LOL

Made this cake a couple of months ago and loved it. Hubby asked for it again! So making it again. So much for the new years resolution!

REALLY, REALLY GOOD! I used a fudge cake mix, burt I'll bet it would just as good with a spice cake mix.

Some of my favorite dessert items chocolate,pecans, and caramel.Cant wait to make It for the holidays.

I am going to try this it looks really good.
