Such a great cake! Rave reviews from everybody on this one. Make absolutely sure to use coconut CREAM, not coconut milk. It will be in the alcohol section. It also looks really pretty with some sliced, fresh strawberries on top. Enjoy!
Delicious!! And fellow cooks, don’t alter recipes so that they are so, so different than the original poster’s and then give them a negative review! If anything, make the original recipe first…THEN tweak it if you must. Only review recipes that have been prepared as directed!
This cake was delicious. I did not have a can of cream of coconut in my pantry, but I did have a can of coconut milk. I combined the coconut milk with the condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl and the mixture was a bit runny, so I added a bit of cornstarch (about 3-4T.)and simmered the 2 ingredients in the microwave for about 4 min.(stirring after 2 min.) to thicken it a bit. It worked out great.
Wow, what a great dessert! I used Devils Food instead of white cake, and added 1/2 tsp. coconut extract to the batter. I also heated up the condensed milk and coconut cream slightly so the sauce would be thinner while pouring over the cake. Poked holes using a wooden spoon handle … the sauce absorbed right in. The cake came out light and fluffy, not soggy like I thought it would. Fabulous taste … hubby ate 2 big pieces as soon as I finished sprinkling the coconut! Thanks for the recipe – this will definitely become a family favorite!
I have to admit it. The cake is pretty good. I saw the recipe and thought oh my god this looks disgusting. But I was intrigued that the recipe recieved such high reviews and so many; so I assumed it had a cult following and I was quickly seduced — finding myself in my local grocery store searching for the ridiculous ingredients.
I made the cake and yes I have to admit again– it is delicious and very light. It is much much better than I would have thought and it does not have that coconut tanning product taste that I find offensive. In any event, the cake, while perverse in its cult status (you should see how weird it looks in my icebox), is a winner. I altered the recipe slightly by pouring a snifter of armagnac over the top before icing it. I also used Betty Crocker yellow cake mix rather than white.

This was so easy, but I did make a few alterations. I added 2 teaspoons of coconut extract to the cake mix for a more home made taste. I also took the advice of others so I only used the cream of coconut without the sweetened condensed milk.( this was plenty moist ) I used cool whip french vanilla and topped with coconut. It was a big hit!! No one would believe that this was so easy and quick to make!! Thanks for this shorter version, it will quickly become one of my favorites!
I accidentally bought coconut mike instead of coconut cream and I actually liked it better. It wasn’t as heavy as the cream!
I added a bit of coconut to the cake batter before baking too. Toasting the coconut on top is a nice touch.
