A few months ago, I have not heard of - much less tasted - poke cakes before. But I have been seeing them all over the internet lately, so I finally decided to give it a try. And you know what? I'm sure glad I did, because I've just added this to my list of favorite treats. I adapted this from this recipe right here. I hope you like it!

1 tsp. vanilla extract
