Prepare Cake: Follow the instructions on the lemon cake mix box to prepare the batter. Bake the cake in a 9x13-inch pan according to package instructions and allow it to cool slightly.

Make Holes: Once the cake is slightly cooled, use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the surface of the cake.

Prepare Filling: In a small bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined. Pour this mixture over the warm cake, ensuring it seeps into the holes.

Frost: Once chilled, spread whipped cream or frosting evenly over the top of the cake.

Serve: Cut the lemon poke cake into squares and serve chilled. Optionally, garnish each piece with a dollop of lemon curd and fresh berries for an extra burst of flavor and presentation.
