This Coconut Cream Cake is light and moist with coconut flavor throughout the cake and light and fluffy coconut on top. Cool and moist coconut cake with just the right amount of sweet!
This cake is similar to a poke cake. You poke holes through the cake so the cream of coconut can soak into the cake. Speaking of cream of coconut, it is not the same as coconut milk. Cream of Coconut is often found in the mixers area in the alcohol aisle at grocery stores.
This Coconut Cream Cake is a perfect dessert for this time of year. It has a light texture and is cool for the warmer days!
