Classic Chocolate Poke Cake

Classic Chocolate Poke Cake is the original poke cake recipe. All other poke cakes were made possible because of this one. Ok, maybe not this particular recipe, but this type of poke cake. The first poke cake, also named the "Better Than Sex" cake, was made like this one: sweetened condensed milk poured over a warm chocolate cake. The whole cake is then topped with Cool Whip and sweet toffee and caramel flavors. This recipe will make you reconsider making any other poke cake besides this one.

Type of DishChocolate Cake


This cake is so good, it cannot be described with a single name. "Poke Cakes" are so called because you poke holes in them after baking in order to fill the cake with delicious sweet filling or syrup, but they have also been called "Better Than Robert Redford," "Better Than Anything," and "Better Than Sex" (BTS for short) cake. These cakes are usually made with cake mix, so they are perfect if you need an easy dessert recipe, but you can also use your favorite homemade cake recipe as a base. You'll need to let the cake chill in the fridge for a few hours, ideally overnight, for the filling to absorb, but it is well worth the wait.

The original BTS cake was much like the one above, a chocolate cake with whipped topping and toffee candy bits sprinkled on top. It's hard to say where the name came from, but it stuck. We can only assume this cake got its name because it's so delicious that it is difficult to exaggerate just how sweet and tasty it is.
