Strawberry Lemonade Cream Cheese Poke Cake
Here’s a delicious strawberry lemonade cream cheese poke cake that is perfect for spring and definitely perfect for a refreshing summer treat. This cake recipe uses my extremely popular cream cheese lemonade pie filling so you know it has to be delicious! Strawberries and lemons, two great flavors in one awesome tasting dessert.
The flavor of the strawberry cake, mixed with the tart, delicious, lemonade cream cheese filling that is just bursting with lemony flavor, then topped with the light and fluffy cool whip, makes this one incredibly delicious dessert that will be requested over and over. Let me just say, the first bite will have you hooked.
The filling is pretty thick and doesn’t run into the holes, but no worries. All you have to do is add some filling to a baggie, clip the corner, squeeze the lemonade filling into the holes, spread the remaining filling over the cake then chill for 4+ hours. Add cool whip and garnish with strawberries and lemon slices right before serving and you will have yourself a deliciously light, scrumptious, tasty cake that your taste buds will love.
Refreshing summer dessert
I actually brought this piece of cake above to the wonderful lady in our townhouse office, Tiera. She has been so wonderful, from before we even moved in to our new place in Texas, with making sure we have everything we need to get settled in. I promised her I would make her a cream cheese lemonade pie once we moved in and that pie, along with this piece of cake, were delivered yesterday to this amazing lady. And of course she loved both. So, if you are craving a deliciously moist cake that has two great flavors in one, this is the cake to make.
