Coconut Poke Cake

A cake mix makes this moist coconut poke cake super easy. Holes are poked in the warm coconut cake, then it is topped simple mixture of sweetened condensed milk and coconut cream. The cooled cake is frosted with whipped cream and flaked coconut.

If you’d like to toast some of the coconut, spread it in a single layer in a large, dry skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring and turning constantly until the coconut is lightly browned. Sweetened coconut browns quickly, so watch carefully. Pour into a bowl to cool before sprinkling over the whipped topping. Toasting even a small amount of the coconut adds extra texture and color to the cake.
