I want to share a recipe with you that my mother has been making for years but I have never made. I was inspired at the grocery store when I saw cake mixes on sale for 50 cents. I had not baked in a while because it has been so hot but this is actually served out of the fridge so I thought I could bare the heat for the 35 minutes it had to bake.
I love recipes that start with cake mixes. Makes for such a quick and no hassle baking experience.
This recipe starts with making a 9×13 white cake. Nothing strange here.
Then you poke holes in the still warm cake and add heated coconut milk (see recipe) over the entire cake.
Let cool and add more coconut “frosting” as my 5 year olds says.
The cake was a success to everyone but my 5 year old who claimed “I want this cake for my next birthday but leave out the coconut from the frosting”. He ate the cake but I had to wipe off the “frosting”.
This is a refreshing and easy cake. Since it needs to sit overnight it is a great cake to make ahead of time. We had it for 3 days in a row and still tasted fresh.
