German Chocolate Poke Cake

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
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk all over the cake and allow to soak into the holes. Let cool.
  5. 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.
  6. After 5 minutes, stir until chocolate melts. Allow ganache to chicken 5 to 10 minutes before spreading over the top of the cake.
  7. Spread coconut frosting over the ganache, serve and enjoy!
