Cherry Poke Cake

This is one of those days I wanted a sugar fix really bad but I don’t want to bake anything fancy or laborious. I want a quick sugar fix! So I thought of poke cake. I think this is the easiest cake recipe I’ve made so far. I just read the box instructions and wala! I got my sugar boost in a short time.
