Throwback of the House: Multi-Generational Poke Cake
I have lots of poke cake recipes in my collection, but I never think to make them for Throwback because I have fond memories of them.
Among the treasures was a set of books from Grand Junction's Antiquarian Cub, who hosted an annual dessert and salad luncheon and compiled the recipes into a rudimentary cookbook. The 1976 edition is mimeographed pages bound with red yarn. Irene Lear, who had twenty-four Jell-O-based recipes in the book, called poke cake "Lemon-Lime Refrigerator Sheet Cake."
