The cake’s unique preparation method allows the strawberry gelatin to seep through, creating delightful pockets of flavor that enhance every bite.

The Story

The concept of poke cake originated in the 1970s as a way to add moisture and flavor to the standard cake. Over the years, it has evolved into a versatile dessert that can be adapted with various flavors. Our Strawberry Poke Cake pays homage to this tradition, using ripe strawberries and gelatin to create a vibrant, refreshing dessert that’s as enjoyable to make as it is to eat.

How to Serve

Serve this cake chilled, garnished with fresh strawberries and a generous dollop of whipped topping. It pairs wonderfully with a cup of tea or a glass of sparkling wine, making it perfect for brunches, picnics, or as an after-dinner treat.

How to Store

Keep the cake covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The flavors meld and deepen over time, making it even more delicious as the days go by.


  • Allow the cake to cool completely before adding the gelatin.
  • Use a fork or skewer to poke deep holes, ensuring the gelatin mixture permeates the cake thoroughly.
  • Let the gelatin set slightly before pouring over the cake to prevent it from seeping out.
