I remember my mom making this coconut cream cake growing up, and it always seemed to be in summertime – although I make it any time of year.

Because it’s a cream cake using a whipped cream topping, we always kept it covered in the fridge and that seemed to make it all the more delicious, moist, and refreshing on a warm day.

This coconut cake recipe uses canned coconut milk – not where you find milk alternatives in the grocery store, but you’ll find it among the Asian cooking section.

It’s unsweetened, which is just fine because this recipe is a twist on a box cake mix … plenty sweet enough!

Directions:

Prepare and box cake mix according to package instructions, mixing in 1/2 cup coconut flakes into batter. Pour into a 9″ x 13″ pan (I personally use this 9×13 AirBake covered pan) and bake according to package instructions. Let cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes.

Using a small wooden spoon handle or other kitchen utensil (in the photo above I used a white orange peeler), poke holes evenly over the whole cake.

Before opening the can of coconut milk, shake well. You may also need to stir once opened as it tends to separate.

Pour half of the can of coconut milk over the cake. Clearly I missed a few holes!
