Such a great cake! Rave reviews from everybody on this one. Make absolutely sure to use coconut CREAM, not coconut milk. It will be in the alcohol section. It also looks really pretty with some sliced, fresh strawberries on top. Enjoy!

This cake was delicious. I did not have a can of cream of coconut in my pantry, but I did have a can of coconut milk. I combined the coconut milk with the condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl and the mixture was a bit runny, so I added a bit of cornstarch (about 3-4T.)and simmered the 2 ingredients in the microwave for about 4 min.(stirring after 2 min.) to thicken it a bit. It worked out great.

Wow, what a great dessert! I used Devils Food instead of white cake, and added 1/2 tsp. coconut extract to the batter. I also heated up the condensed milk and coconut cream slightly so the sauce would be thinner while pouring over the cake. Poked holes using a wooden spoon handle ... the sauce absorbed right in. The cake came out light and fluffy, not soggy like I thought it would. Fabulous taste ... hubby ate 2 big pieces as soon as I finished sprinkling the coconut! Thanks for the recipe - this will definitely become a family favorite!
