Pure Vanilla Poke Cake

This opulent pure vanilla poke cake showcases the velvety richness of sweetened condensed milk, the tangy character of buttermilk, and the essence of Mom’s homemade rum-steeped vanilla pods, which flavor the soaked cake and laces the whipped frosting.

To dress this masterpiece, a generous layer of Chantilly cream is meticulously spread, lending an air of Southern refinement and elegance. The ethereal creaminess of this frosting complements the cake’s intense vanilla profile, enveloping each slice with a cloud-like lightness.
