Tina's Tuesday Tip: Cool Coconut Cake

It's Tuesday, which means it's tip day. This is such an EASY yet YUMMY recipe that always gets great reviews. I usually keep the ingredients on hand for "emergencies". ;) In fact my 13 year old nephew made it a few weeks ago for a scout cake-off and he won! I usually tell people it's like a coconut Tres Leches Cake. Try it out, make a twist, tell me what you think.

Cool Coconut Cake

1 box yellow cake mix (and it's called-for ingredients)
1 can coconut milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tub whipped topping
1 cup of coconut flakes (optional)

-bake the cake according to box directions
-combine coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk
-when cake is done, poke several (let's say 30 or so) holes in the hot cake with butter knife
-pour combined milks as evenly as possible over hot cake
-let cool
-cover with whipped topping and coconut flakes
-serve chilled

*this is also VERY yummy served warm, just add the whipped topping to individual portions, and either way it pairs amazingly with vanilla ice cream.



I've been wanting to try this cake so I'm glad you posted the recipe.
