I have a question about the recipe "OMG! Coconut Pound Cake" from ChefJune. How many holes do you poke in cake and how deep do you go with skewer?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

I use the metal skewers I would use for a turkey, and I go as deep as the skewer will let me. (Obviously I don't let go of it or it would get lost inside the cake.) I don't really count how many holes, but I go thoroughly all over the surface. You want the cake to be as evenly imbibed with the syrup as possible. Maybe 35 or 40 pokes?
