Scratch ingredients turned into a delicious moist Banana Toffee Poke Cake with Browned Butter Frosting

Our family loves apples, and when I made my Apple Fritter Pull-Apart Bread it was a big hit!  Even on here, it has been quite popular, however a few people said it seemed complicated.  So I decided to take all the flavors and make it into a quick, easy and oh so delicious poke cake!  We love how the icing seeps all down through the cake, and I know you will too.

Ingredients are as follows:

  • Cake:
    • 1/2 C butter, melted & cooled
    • 1 C brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 1/2 C flour
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
  • Icing:
    • 1 C powdered sugar
    • 4 Tbsp. cream or milk
    • 1 tsp. vanilla 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a 9 x 9 inch pan (I used a springform pan)

Mix the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla together; set aside.

Mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon together.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until combined.

Mix in the can of apples; I like to dice mine up a little.

Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 25-28 minutes, until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.

Cool for five minutes, remove from pan then poke holes into the cake; set aside.

Mix together the powdered sugar, cream and vanilla until smooth.

Drizzle all over the cake, allowing it to go into the holes.

 Slice, serve and enjoy!
