Lemon Coconut Poke Cake

I seem to be craving lemon and coconut lately.  So why not combine them for a tasty poke cake?  Poke cake is one of the easiest desserts you can make.  Bake a cake mix according to directions, poke holes in the cake (I use the handle of a wooden spoon), mix up and pour on a filling.  Top with whipped cream and enjoy.  The variations are endless.  This combination is a nice spring cake.

1 box white cake mix
1 small box lemon instant pudding mix
1 can coconut milk
1/2 t. coconut flavoring
milk as needed
1/2 c. powdered sugar
whipped cream or Cool Whip
coconut flakes

Bake the cake mix according to directions, except substituting coconut milk for the required water in the recipe.  Bake in a 13 x 9 pan.  When the cake is done, take the handle of a wooden spoon and poke holes into the cake.  Mix together the pudding mix, and remainder of the coconut milk-you may need to add some milk to it to equal one cup, and powdered sugar.  Pour over cake.  Refrigerate.  Frost with Cool Whip or whipped cream.  Sprinkle with coconut flakes.
