Boston Creme Poke Cake

I have been neglecting posting recipes during this difficult time in my life.  I’ve been lucky that I made crock pot freezer meals or food left over from our picnic we had last week.  So we have not been eating out.  I have not had to do any grocery shopping.  With an extra person at our house, this is amazing.

This cake was my birthday cake this year.  I put the photos and recipe in my Google Drive until I was read to post the recipe.

This is one delicious cake.  It was very moist and tasted like Boston Creme Pies.  I’ve never actually had a Boston Creme Pie but have had a Boston Creme doughnut at Tim Horton’s.  Which by the way is my favorite doughnut there.  Just saying.  So I’m assuming that this tastes the same.

With a birthday coming up, I am probably going to make this for him.  Hubby, cough cough, Hubby.  Who by the way is turning 39 for the sixth year coming up.

I hope you make this cake.  It is so delicious!
