This Coconut Cake is a super moist recipe from my mom, and when she made it during our vacation I knew it was a recipe that was going to need to be shared here for you.

To make this amazing coconut cake, you need four simple ingredients:

Coconut Cake with Cool Whip Frosting

White Cake Mix
Cool Whip
2/3 can coconut MILK
1/2 Bag coconut

Whip up and bake the cake as directed on the cake box.  Directly out of the oven, poke holes on the top of the cake.  You can use a straw to make perfect little holes!  Pour about 2/3 of the coconut milk onto the top of the cake.  Use a spatula to spread it over the top, focusing on the holes.  Cover the cake and put in fridge to cool.  When  the cake is completely cooled, cover with a tub of Cool Whip and sprinkle with coconut! 

It’s that simple!  You can add fresh berries to lessen the guilt you’ll have of eating this delicious cake for breakfast.  It can’t be any worse than pancakes, can it?

Do with yours as you may and let us know in the comments how you chose to top your cake!

  1. Hi! You left a kind comment on my blog about Earthquake cake and invited me to link up to a new party for desserts only. Unfortunately, because of Google’s link building/spam rules no one really understands, I don’t allow links in my comments. Sooooo, I edited the comment to remove the link, but now I can’t remember what it was!!! If you wouldn’t mind, I’d love if you shared it (again) 🙂 So sorry!
