“My cousin just made this for Easter and scribbled it on a scrap piece of paper for me. It is so super moist and super coconut-y! The cook time doesn't include the cake sitting overnight.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease and flour 2 round cake pans or 1 - 9x13 rectangle.
  2. In a bowl: combine cake mix, eggs, oil, water, & extract then beat for about 2 minutes and pour into pans. Bake for half an hour (until baked through).
  3. In a clean bowl: mix coconut cream with condensed milk and stir until smooth. When the cake comes out, poke holes in it all over (with a fork or skewers) then pour the milk mixture over the whole cake. Leave to absorb overnight.
  4. Beat cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue whipping until stiff. Either make it into a layered cake or just ice the top of a 9x13. Sprinkle top with flaked coconut (you can toast it if you want).
