There’s just something about summer. We do things like swim instead of take naps, do puzzles instead of work, and have dessert … sometimes twice. I find that during the summer I gravitate to lighter dinner fare like grilled meats, fresh farmer’s market veggies, and fruit salad. So why shouldn’t we eat dessert!?
I used extra creamy COOL WHIP whipped topping for this, which I had never seen in the store before. It was just the extra touch of special the cake needed for a Wednesday-night treat. We took some to our neighbors and all had a slice after an hour of bike-riding and running for the kids and some nice catch-up time for mamas.
Ain’t summer grand?
This is a poke cake, which means after it cooks, you poke holes and pour stuff on top of it. This creates an exceptionally moist cake. The COOL WHIP balances well with the rich dark chocolate cake. You can use any chocolate or devil’s food cake you want as your base.
