This cake is so yummy! I first had it when Steve's cousin, Rochelle made it for every family dinner we had. It was always my favorite, so I got her recipe and have been making it ever since. And anytime I make it for some occasion or someone else, I always end up having to give the recipe. So here it is! And what's even better is that it's easy!
One more thing, if you hate coconut like Steve does, chances are you will still like this cake if you don't put coconut on top. Coconut haters usually still love it.
*1 white cake mix-made according to package directions (9X13)
*1 can sweetened condensed milk
*1 can cream of coconut (16 oz) (found in the alcohol section-just be sure you look both ways first so that no one in your ward sees you in that section!) (It's by all the fun looking mixer type stuff) (sometimes it comes in a squeeze bottle, too)
*sliced strawberries (I use frozen, but you can use fresh)
*coconut to sprinkle on the top if you want
Right after you pull the cake out of the oven, poke it all over with a fork. Mix sweetened condensed milk and cream of coconut together and pour all over the holes. Let it sit in the refrigerator over night or for several hours. Layer on strawberries and cool whip. Sprinkle with coconut. (I never sprinkle coconut on.) (Rochelle sometimes makes this with bananas instead of strawberries-I haven't ever done that, but it's good both ways).
