Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Pumpkin Poke Cake

There are lots of options out there for 'poke cakes' - poke holes in a hot cake, pour something on top, refrigerate and frost.  This one is a wonderful fall treat.

1 package butter recipe cake mix
1 cup pumpkin purée
2 large eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 jars hot fudge topping (about 24 ounces)
1 container whipped white frosting OR 8 ounce tub cool whip 

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease bottom only of 9x13 cake pan.

Mix cake mix through nutmeg.  Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes until cake springs back when lightly touched.  Remove from oven and poke all over with a wooden spoon.  I space my holes about 1 inch apart and 1 inch away from the sides of the pan.  Pour milk over cake.  Let sit for at least five minutes.

While sitting, heat hot fudge until pourable.  Pour over cake, pressing into the holes.  Refrigerate at least two hours.  Frost with the frosting or cool whip.  If using cool whip, top right before serving.
