  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat Cake ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on cooling rack 5 minutes. With handle of wooden spoon (1/2 inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking with paper towel.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat Filling ingredients with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Pour over cake; spread evenly over surface, working back and forth to fill holes. (Some filling will remain on top of cake.) Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled.
  • 5
    When ready to serve, drop whipped topping by spoonfuls over cake; spread evenly. Sprinkle toffee bits over top. Cut into 4 rows by 3 rows. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.
  • Be sure to poke the cake about 50 to 60 times so there is plenty of filling in the cake!

Expert Tips

  • In a poke cake, after baking, holes are poked and a variety of fillings poured over the top such as gelatin, pudding, sweetened condensed milk or fruit puree; then it’s topped with your favorite topping.
