Eggless Turtle Poke Cake

I have three kids and for birthdays I usually make a cake.  I don’t usually buy.  It’s normally egg free so I’m always trying out different recipes and this one is a family favorite.  They love how moist this one tastes.  If they tell me it’s as good as an “egg cake”, then I keep it!

If you are a regular follower of my blog, then you know I’m allergic to eggs and always on the lookout for new egg free desserts.  If I can’t find a good one, then I start experimenting using my husband and kids as guinea pigs.  I have an Egg Free Dessert Pinterest board you can follow!

How to make chocolate caramel poke cake

Step 1

Add flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda into a 9 x 13 baking dish that you will cook in.

Step 2

Make wells and add the liquid ingredients; vegetable oil, vanilla, vinegar, and water. Mix well.

Step 3

Bake for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Once your cake has cooled, poke holes into your cake with the end of a wooden spoon (or straw), about 40, and pour your caramel sauce over cake. Spread evenly over the cake and make sure it gets in the holes.

Step 5

Spread store bought (or your own) chocolate frosting evenly over the cake.

**This recipe calls for caramel sweetened condensed milk.  If you can’t find it in the canned milk aisle of your grocery store, then the caramel syrup from the ice cream topping section works too!**
