What is it about fall that makes us turn towards all the cozy flavors, is it just that we grew up with those traditions, or is it that we know we can finally ditch the bikini body? Haha, either way, this is the time of year that I’m pinning anything I find that’s “spiced” and I’m making anything I can find that’s both spiced and spiked, because there’s nothing better than warming up with a mug of my Crock Pot Apple Cider. Actually, I take that back, If I had a slice of this cake to go with it, that would definitely be better.

Now, is it just me or are all of these comfort foods laced with some laziness too, because not only do I want to eat all the mashed potatoes and sugar in sight, I also just want to watch movies and read all day. And that’s exactly what I plan to do Thanksgiving weekend – absolutely nothing. Well, except watch Gilmore Girls and tackle my never ending To Be Read list. What do you all have planned for the upcoming holiday?

Hopefully, somewhere in your busy schedule, you’ll be able to fit in time to make this tempting Caramel Spice Poke Cake.

This dish is pure comfort!

  1. You have heavy cream listed twice on this recipe. Do you use the total amount on top or is some supposed to get mixed in with the sweetened condensed milk? Can you clarify?

  2. Making it for Super Bowl to go with our pork chop dinner! Sounds absolutely delicious.
