The Kentucky Derby is a big part of Southern culture -- and Southern food. This recipe for Mint Julep Poke Cake is the perfect thing to serve at your Kentucky Derby party! It’s sweet, filled with a creamy bourbon glaze filling, and it tastes just like a mint julep in cake form. Good luck finding a dessert that is more Southern than cake with bourbon! Serve this cake at your next summer party or potluck, and it will feel like you’re actually standing in the crowd at Churchill Downs.
