Coconut Cream Poke Cake Recipe

Inspiration can turn up anywhere. For me, almost anything can spark an idea for a recipe, it might be a movie, tv show, a photo in a magazine, heck it might be a conversation. The inspiration for this poke cake actually started out at work.

We were discussing our fellow co-worker’s, love/adoration for poke cakes.  Seriously, she could win the award for biggest fan of poke cakes….if there was such a thing.
However, I had heard of Poke cake before but I’d never made one. (I mean of course I’d heard of it, I’ve seen it all over the food blogger scene before).
