Coconut cake is my husband’s favorite cake.  Since his birthday was yesterday,  we celebrated with this Coconut Poke Cake.  This cake  is not only delicious but it is extremely easy to prepare.  I found this Coconut Poke Cake Recipe on the Duncan Hines website when I was looking for the Banana Pudding Poke Cake I made last weekend.  Both of these cakes turned out better than I expected them to be.  The Coconut Poke Cake and the Banana Pudding Poke Cake ingredients definitely kick up a plain cake mix.  I have no doubt I will make both quick, easy, and delicious cakes again, especially when I have no time to bake a cake from scratch.  Like I said in an earlier post this week about Dino’s 24 Karrot Cake Company, I bake and eat way to much cake.  With six people still at home, it seems like we are always celebrating a birthday, anniversary, “Gotcha Day”, Easter, Valentine’s, and many other holidays.  If a cake is not super moist and delicious, I do not eat it nor bake it again.  I will definitely be baking this cake again!

    Barbara,

    I love Poke Cakes. I am thinking about doing two more but it is a difficult right now because I am trying to loose a few pounds. I have a couple of ideas to try. Poke cakes are so easy and YUMMY!
    Blessings,

    Oh I have had such a great time looking at the poke cake receipes you have tried recently! I can hardly wait to try them. Being alone now I think maybe put them in two smaller pans and share one with someone. Then I won’t have a large dish half full with cake forever. I can also try the different ones much sooner while being neighborly at the same time. Thanks for your enthusiasm.
