Quick, Easy & Delicious Cake. I have taken it to many potlucks and it is always one of the first to be eaten. My Dad loved this cake. If you can't find a Coconut Cake Mix, you can use Yellow or White cake mix also.
- 1 (18 ounce) box coconut cake mix
- 1⁄3 cup oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 (14 ounce) can cream of coconut, Coco Lopez
- 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip
- 2 cups shredded coconut
- Preheat oven to 350 (or as Directed on Cake Mix).
- Mix together Cake Mix, Eggs and Oil (as per cake mix instructions).
- Once you have the cake mixed, stir in 1/2 - 1 cup of coconut.
- Pour batter into a 9 x 13 baking pan.
- Bake Cake according to instructions on box, or until it passes the toothpick test.
- Remove cake from oven, and give it just a few minutes to cool a little.
- While cake is still warm, poke holes in it. I use a serving fork to make big enough holes, so all the yummy cream of coconut can really get into the cake.
- Shake the Cream of Coconut very well to make sure the juice and the coconut are mixed well, you may even have to stir a little bit with a spoon after you open the can.
- Pour Cream of Coconut all over the warm cake, make sure to get around the edges too.
- Allow cake to cool and soak up all of the juice, I usually let mine sit overnight.
- Ice with Cool Whip and then put remaining coconut on top.
- If you want you can tint the coconut on top with food coloring for any holiday.
OMG! I made this and took it out to my mom's and she even had the neighbors coming over to have some. It was wonderful!! I had to use a white cake mix and I added coconut to it. I also toasted the coconut to go on top of the cake. Very good! Thanks so much for posting!!
I made this cake exactly as written with a yellow cake mix. My opinion is just OK. The cream of coconut does add moistness but I was expecting more. It is an easy recipe and quick so I'm giving it 3 stars. I can see why this would be a hit at potlucks.
