This is a delicious cake that's a little fancier that the typical poke cakes.

I am making this recipe for the second time in two weeks. It is so delicious and easy to make...I'm not a big fan of baking. I have found that for busy weekends where you're going to two functions, make it in two 8" pans, then you only have to cook once! I did make a few changes though...I don't think it needs the whipped topping and garnishes; it's delectible on its own. Also, I use pineapple in its own juice and just add some brown sugar. It keeps it lightly sweet and moist. Thank you soooo much for this recipe!!!
