Coconut Cake


Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail, hippity hoppity.....This is my Easter bunny cake.  LuAnn, who works at the library, gave me this recipe.  I'm always asking people for any good recipes so that we can share them with you.  So if any of you have a great recipe you would like to share, send them to us.  We would love to try them out.  Thanks LuAnn for the great recipe!  I miss you all.

This is one of those really easy and so good recipes.  It's quick and easy to follow and makes a really moist cake that has a good coconut flavor.  If you're looking for a great coconut cake, you should try this one!

I'm excited for Easter to be here because my family is coming over to my house for Easter dinner after church.  I've gotten the cake done  I do a little work every night so it's not too hard on the weekend.  I'm excited for Carter, my grandson, to have his first Easter egg hunt - I've stuffed all the plastic eggs and his Easter basket is ready in case he doesn't get very many eggs. 

I'm excited for Easter too because it's really about new life and the raising up from the dead, our savior, Jesus Christ.  We would be lost without him!  I thank God everyday for all the blessings he has given me, and I'm thankful for new beginnings in my life.  Have a wonderful Easter!!

1 pkg cake mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can Cream of Coconut
1 medium container of Cool Whip

1.  Bake a sheet cake (9 x 13). - White, yellow or chocolate.  Cool for 5 minutes.  Poke holes in the cake with a large fork. 
2.  Mix together sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 can of Cream of Coconut (not coconut milk).  Pour this slowly over the hot cake. 
3. When the cake is completely cooled, mix together cool whip and the rest of the can of Cream of Coconut and spread this on top of the cake. 
4.  Top with coconut and store in the refrigerator.

note:  The Cream of Coconut is sometimes in the baking area of grocery store and other times in the mixed drink section (for cocktails).  Whisk the Cream of Coconut before using.
