Recipe of the Day: Day 1 – Better than “Cough, Cough, Wink Wink” Pumpkin Poke Cake

Monday, December 1, 2014

A million years ago (4), I decided to post a recipe of the day all 31 days of December. Let’s do that again, or at least act like I’m going to post something on my blog everyday in December, you know, like I did 3 years ago!

Without further adieu, today’s recipe of the day is something I actually made for my giant family Thanksgiving celebration last week. A TOTAL hit and crazy easy, this is the kind of cake in which there are no leftovers.

Better Than Sex Pumpkin Poke Cake

I’ll have you click on over to Something Swanky for the recipe, but just a few quick notes on the recipe: 1) Just the pumpkin and cake mix was delicious, no poking required. If you’re looking for a light, diet-y dessert, just make that. 2) I skipped the caramel sauce, claiming it didn’t need it and would be too rich if added. I really just forgot to get it at the store, but in actuality, it doesn’t need it. Do what you want about that. 3) I also think crushed Butterfinger would be amazing instead of Heath.
