Heavenly Carrot Poke Cake Recipe

Heavenly Carrot Poke Cake Recipe
Heavenly Carrot Poke Cake Recipe

This is the perfect way to spice up your usual carrot cake recipe. You can use your favorite carrot cake from scratch, or simply use a box mix to make this Heavenly Carrot Cake Poke Cake. The real icing on the cake is... well,the icing on this cake. The whipped cream cheese caramel frosting is to die for. The holes in this poke cake allow the frosting to soak into the cake, making this poke cake perfectly moist. You won't be able to stop eating this amazing creamy carrot cake.




  • 1 box carrot cake mix with pudding and the necessary ingredients per box instructions
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 8 ounces whipped cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven, prepare and bake the cake in a 9 x 13 bake pan as package directs. Immediately poke holes into the cake using the handle of a wooden spoon pushed completely to the bottom of the bake pan. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top and into the holes. Let cake cool for 10-15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whip the cream cheese until smooth, then beat in the whipped topping and vanilla only briefly just until well mixed. Spread topping over the cake in an even layer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  3. When ready to serve, drizzle with the caramel and sprinkle with pecans. Store cake in the refrigerator.

I haven't had carrot cake in years, and I never thought to make a poke carrot cake. This looks amazing and I know how wonderfully moist poke cakes are, so my family will love this! I found this recipe at just the right time with Easter, two birthdays and a graduation coming up soon in my family. I have lots of occasions to bake for and good excuses to make something yummy!

Typically, carrot cakes are too sweet for my liking, but not so with this recipe. It was very moist, and I found the cream cheese and pecans balanced the sweetness quite well.

This carrot cake was absolutely amazing! Super moist and delicious frosting as well.

I usually really like carrot cake. Not this one. Way too sweet and didn't taste the carrot.

I don't even like carrot cake, but this recipe was AMAZING! Perfect. I wouldn't change a thing.

YUM. This cake was super moist and sweet and delicious.

I'm not usually a fan of carrot cake or poke cakes, but this one isn't half bad! I don't like the soggy-ness very much, but otherwise it was a pretty enjoyable cake.

This recipe is so delicious! The cake is super moist, and the whipped frosting was dynamite. Cream cheese frosting would probably also rock on this.

I LOVED this carrot cake! It was perfectly moist and deliciously sweet.

The cake part was alright, but I LOVED the icing. The nuts on top were just the perfect addition.

This was not my favorite. The taste was fine, but the texture was all wrong. Certain spots were downright mushy (not in a good way), while other spots were dry. I like a traditional cream cheese frosting on my carrot cakes, so I was also not a fan of the frosting.

This had a great taste for such a simple cake. So good

Heavenly is a good description for this cake. I especially liked the frosting!
