This lemon poke cake is a cool refreshing cake that’s perfect for spring and summer get togethers.
We are so lucky to have such amazing citrus here in AZ. Now that the weather is getting hotter, we have less and less of the delicious citrus, but lucky for me, I do a bunch of juice in the winter and save all that goodness in my freezer. I do that so that when I have a craving for something refreshing, like some homemade lemonade, I can just pull out all that wonderful juice and mix up a pitcher.
Luckily for you, this lemon poke recipe doesn’t call for any fresh lemon juice, but it does have a refreshing lemon flavor that is perfect for summertime parties.
