Coconut Cream Cake

Don't tell my sweetie, but this is what I'm planning to fix for him on Valentine's Day.


1 box of white cake mix
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 can cream of coconut
1 bag of coconut flakes
1 large container of Cool Whip

Bake cake according to package directions, adding half of the bag of the coconut flakes to the cake mixture. As soon as cake comes out of the oven, spray a wooden spoon handle with a cooking spray. Poke holes in cake about a half inch apart. Mix the cream of coconut and the Eagle Brand Milk together and pour evenly over the top of the cake. Cool cake completely. In the same bowl, mix the entire container of Cool Whip with the remaining bag of coconut flakes. Top cake with Cool Whip mixture and spread evenly. Refrigerate immediately.

Doesn't that sound wonderful? My sweetie loves coconut cake and pie, macaroons, anything with coconut, so I think he'll enjoy this. (So will I!)


  1. Thought I should post a follow-up. This cake is AWESOME! If you want something special, this is it. Bake it for any occasion. How about Father's Day??

  2. I use this same recipe with one variation, making it a Pina Colada cake. After the Eagle brand and cream of coconut are added- but before the Cool Whip- add a can of crushed pineapples (drained). Complete as the original recipe directs. It's wonderful!

  3. Soleil,
    Thank you for that wonderful idea! My next version will be Pina Colada cake!
