- Bourbon gives this poke cake a spiked eggnog flavor, but if you prefer to leave it out, just increase the milk by 1/4 cup.
- To ensure the pudding makes its way to the bottom of each poked hole, gently tap the sides of the cake pan after spreading the pudding.
- Cover and refrigerate any leftover cake.
