Easy Coconut Poke Cake

Easy Coconut Poke Cake

This Easy Coconut Poke Cake is super moist.  It is so easy to make using a cake mix, sweetened condensed milk, cream of coconut, macadamia nuts, and coconut.  It is full of coconut flavor and delicious.

This #Coconut Poke Cake Recipe is super moist from the condensed milk and coconut milk poured on top of it. http://recipesforourdailybread.com/2013/03/28/easy-coconut-poke-cake/
This Coconut Poke Cake Recipe is super moist.  Learn from my mistake and watch your coconut and macadamia nuts when toasting them.  Take them out of the oven before they get toasted this dark.  Lightly toast them!!

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!#Coconut Cake Poke Cake - So easy to make using a cake mix. Super moist and delicious.

  1. 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.

    • 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,
