Easy Caramel Banana Nut Poke Cake Recipe

This Caramel Banana Nut Poke Cake is all the things you have ever dreamed of, in a cake, and more. It’s quick, simple, and full of sweet flavor.

The cake was so moist, gooey and delicious that it didn’t last long around our house.

Needless to say, this cake is our new go to and favorite cake for any occasion and birthday. If you are in need of a quick cake idea, this is your answer.

It came together in minutes, is practically fail proof, and is so tasty.


I love this recipe, and my family does as well, that we usually don’t have much leftover. However, if you do have some leftover, the best way to store it, is putting it in the fridge.

We recommend placing it in an air tight storage container, and putting it in the fridge.

If you aren’t going to eat it for more than a week, we recommend freezing it. Again the best way to freeze it is placing it in an airtight storage container and putting it in the freezer.
