Vanilla Spice Poke Cake

There is just something about fall that puts me in the mood for baking.  One of my favorite things about this time of year is that the weather begins to cool down enough to start using the oven again.  This recipe gives you those warm and fuzzy fall feelings while making the house smell delicious.
