Church ladies know how to cook, especially when they are charged with the task of preparing for a “covered dish” luncheon. Our group of ladies made a dessert I saw on Pinterest — Banana Caramel Poke Cake.
Basically, you take a boxed cake mix, add a box of pudding mix, bake it. Then when it comes out of the oven you poke the top of the cake to make holes, then pour sweet condensed milk, let it set overnight in the refrigerator, and top with a cool whip pudding mixture. It reminds me alot of how a tres leche cake would taste.
We made seven pans of cake. Here are two beautiful church ladies — Mrs. Burdette and Mrs. Neill — prepping the cakes in the church kitchen.
Mrs. Young put little brownie mice in the corners of each cake.
After we cut and plated about 100 pieces of cake, we saved the best piece — the center cut — for ourselves. Four forks later, here’s the empty pan.
