coconut cake fixed

Every time my husband makes his Coconut Cake everyone goes a little crazy! I kid you not. It is so moist and rich with just the right sweetness that we cannot get enough of it! 

The sad fact is that there are never any leftovers, which is unfortunate because it’s even better the second day after all the flavors meld. But it never lasts that long.

So if you are looking for a yummy and impressive cake this is it!  It’s so easy to make that your kids can do it and you can lounge around and contemplate the best plan for quietly removing it from the fridge and taking it to an undisclosed location to make yourself sick with the luscious goodness. If you do figure out a good diversion to accomplish this, please let me know. Does this make me a bad person?  I don’t think so.

Hubby’s Coconut Cake


  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups sweet coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping


Servings 12

  1. Prepare the cake mix as directed, bake in a 13 x 9 pan. Let it cool in the pan 10 – 15 minutes. Then pierce the cake every 1/2 inch or so with a large fork (I use a small diameter chop stick).
  2. Combine the milk, sugar and 1/2 of the coconut in a saucepan. Bring to boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 1 minute. Spoon over the cake, spread the coconut evenly. Allow to cool. .
  3. When cake is completely cooled stir 1 1/2 cup of the coconut into the thawed whipped topping and spread on the cake. Sprinkle with the remaining coconut.
  4. Refrigerate overnight.

It’s wonderful with sliced kiwi or chilled canned mandarin oranges and pineapple.

Happy baking and eating!
