Creamy Coconut Rum Cake Recipe

 

Creamy Coconut Rum Cake

 

I’ve been on the lookout for a yummy coconut cake for awhile now. I found several that sounded good but not exactly what I was looking for. So I tweaked a recipe and tried it out. I served it last week at a picnic and had people begging for the recipe! It was honestly that good. Matt has declared it is the best cake that he’s ever had. And he doesn’t even really like coconut so that’s high praise indeed!

 

Ingredients:

1 box white cake mix + ingredients on box
1/4 cup Coconut Rum
2 1/2 cups coconut flakes, divided
1 can sweetened condensced milk
1 can (14oz) Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut
1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip

 

 

Mix cake as directed on box, substituting 1/4 cup of called for water with the Coconut Rum. Mix 1/2 cup of coconut flakes into batter.

 

 

Pour into greased 13×9 baking pan.

 

 

Bake according to directions on cake mix box.

 

 

While cake is still hot, use fork to poke holes in top of cake.

 

 

Mix together the sweetened condensced milk and Cream of coconut. Please Note: Cream of Coconut is usually found in the mixed drink aisle. It is NOT the same as Coconut Milk!

 

 

Pour mixture over top of hot cake.

 

 

Allow cake to cool long enough for the mixture to soak in completely.

 

 

Top cake with thawed cool whip.

 

 

Sprinkle remaining 2 cups of coconut flakes over top of cool whip.

 

 

Oh yeah. Look how good it looks.

 

 

Is your mouth watering yet? It should be. The rum and the coconut flakes in the cake batter makes this cake absolutely To Die For yummy!

 

Make sure to keep any leftovers (ha, like you’ll have leftovers) in the fridge.

    OMGoodness, I am trying to eat a lot healthier these lazy days, since I can’t hit the gym with the kids in tow, but then come a recipe like yours, and all that goes out the window. This looks and sounds delicious, and thankfully, I already have the rum on hand ;) Can’t wait to try it out.

    This sounds fantastic. I adore coconut desserts. Might have to try this one soon and I REALLY love poking cakes and pouring deliciousness on them. Thanks for sharing!

    This recipe is awesome, but is even better with a strawberry sauce drizzled on it! Just take strawberry glaze and add fresh strawberries, blend! Drizzle, dip , pour whatever makes you happy! ;-)

    Coconut is one of my favorites, can’t wait to make this. Also a good excuse to buy coconut rum, for some reason I’m out.

    OMG – that looks insanely good and easy! Would you believe it, I actually have a lonely can of Cream of Coconut in my pantry? I have no idea why I have it, and have been wondering what the hell to do with it. Thanks, Sister!

    I was just thinking I needed another poke cake recipe. I would love to try this, but it would be another case of me eating the whole thing since I’m the only one who likes coconut. That might not be so bad, though.
