This is yet another variation on the ever popular poke cake. I posted a chocolate peanut butter one earlier on this blog. This cake is one of my favorite's to serve if I am doing a Hawaiian Luau theme...or if you are having a tropical type dinner..or if you just love coconut..or cake..or actually any old time. It has just a few ingredients, comes together easily and will make you look like a cooking queen (or king!)
1 boxed white cake mix
1 can coconut milk
2 c. coconut
1 container cool whip topping.
Mix the cake according to the box directions. Pour into 13 x 9 pan and bake the time indicated on the box mix. As soon as it comes out of the oven, take the end of a wooden spoon (not the spoon end) and poke holes all over the cake. Then pour the coconut milk over the cake and refrigerate. Before serving frost with the cool whip. Sprinkle coconut over the top of the cool whip.
