Summer is full of Cook-outs, Potlucks, Picnics and gathering with family and friends. Having an easy, delicious dessert to take along to your celebration is important. If you have been around here often, you will quickly realize that I love sharing impressive looking desserts that are easy to bake and share.

One of my favorite ways to add flavor to a cake or cupcakes without a lot of fuss is to use a flavored creamer, like International Delight. For a burst of cool, peppermint flavor, I baked York Peppermint Pattie Cupcakes. The Irish Cream Push Pops were a huge hit, as were the Chai Tea Latte Cupcakes. I even added some International Delight to frozen drinks; Milkshakes and Frappuccinos to add extra flavor.

This time, the Southern Butter Pecan was the perfect addition to this Poke Cake. Starting with a yellow cake mix, then replace the water with Southern Butter Pecan Gourmet Coffee Creamer, eggs and butter and baked according to the directions on the box in a 13×9 pan. Then after the cake was cooled, poke holes with a chop stick or wooden skewer and pour 1 cup more of the Southern Butter Pecan Creamer and into the refrigerator to chill.

After a few hours to chill, add the frosting, a mixture of Cool Whip Whipped Topping, Marshmallow Fluff, Powdered Sugar and Vanilla Extract. And if this Butter Pecan Cake wasn’t delicious enough, chop Butterfinger Candy Bars and sprinkle on top!
