    Adopted Parisian's Note:

    This fun cake is wonderful for parties, showers, and anytime you want a refreshing, lemony dessert. It is called "poke" cake because you poke holes in the cake and pour pudding into these. Once cut, the pudding will make yummy stripes through each slice. You could adapt the recipe for your favorite flavor cake and pudding combo. Please note: cook time is for cake.
