1 box (18.5 ounce size) white cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
1 can (14 ounce size) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (15 ounce size) cream of coconut, not coconut milk
1 carton (8 ounce size) Cool Whip
flaked coconut


Grease and flour 9 x 13 baking dish. Prepare cake mix as package directs.

Combine sweetened condensed milk with cream of coconut and set aside. While cake is still warm, poke holes all over with fork and then pour milk mix over it--ALL OF IT as the cake will absorb it.

Made this cake and added sweetened condensed milk to cream of cococut using a mixer to fully incorporate and spread over top of hot cake. Also used top of wooden spoon to make the holes. Milk mixture soaks through much faster and cake remains together. Also can cut and freeze pieces really good after thawing in fridge. You will love this cake!

I have made this cake before and know it is yummy. Made today (cake only for special occasion) and thought I would finish tonight. Of course, the cake was not warm when I poured liquids over. Some of liquids seemed to go to sides. Think it will be ok and will soak up liquids over nite? Thank you

This is the best coconut cake I've ever tasted. So moist, and full of flavor. It's easy, but people will be amazed that you're such a wonderful baker. If you love coconut you absolutely must try this recipe

I used yellow cake for mine, added a few tablespoons of coconut rum for soaking, and toasted the coconut. Great, simple recipe! (see picture)

This is one of those cakes that you need to make and take... otherwise you'll eat the entire thing yourself! YUMMY!
