German Chocolate Poke Cake

Ingredients

FOR THE CAKE:

1 box dark chocolate fudge cake mix

1 (3.4 oz) box chocolate fudge instant pudding

4 large eggs

1 cup plain yogurt

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup whole milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

FOR THE FILLING:

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

FOR THE GANACHE:

4 oz chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup heavy cream

FOR THE FROSTING:

1 can coconut pecan frosting

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding, eggs, yogurt, vegetable oil, milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until combined and pour into prepared pan.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and poke holes all over the cake with the handle of a wooden spoon.

Pour the sweetened condensed milk all over the cake and allow to soak into the holes. Let cool.

While cake is cooling, place chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. Heat cream in a saucepan until just beginning to bubble around the edges. Pour over chocolate and allow to sit for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, stir until chocolate melts. Allow ganache to thicken 5 to 10 minutes before spreading over the top of the cake.

Spread coconut frosting over the ganache, serve and enjoy!
