Coconut Cake

I am not a huge fan of coconut, but when I tried this cake, I was hooked!! I made it for dessert last night!! Thanks Abby for the great recipe! I will be making this again!

Angel Coconut Creme Cake

1 box white cake mix
1 8 1/2 oz can creme of coconut (in the alcohol section, make sure you stir really well)
1/4 c veggie oil
3 large egg whites
1 c. coconut

2 c heavy whipping cream
1/4 sugar
coconut for topping

Make cake according to directions on box, but just using egg whites. Pour into 2 9" cake pans or I used a 9 x 13. Bake for 18 min at 350, or until done. When done, poke holes in cake layers with toothpicks or fork tines and pour cream of coconut over cake layers. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove cooled layers from pan. Frost with sweetened cream in between layers, on tops and sides. Sprinkle with coconut.

For the frosting: Whip 2 cups heavy whipping cream in chilled bowl and chilled beaters until thick. Add the sugar when it starts to get thick. Do not over whip.

Looks like you had a great time! That's too bad you had some sickness, but glad everyone is getting better.
Glad you enjoyed the cake! RJ isn't a fan of coconut either, but he even liked it too. It's so yummy. Whenever I think about it I try to find an excuse to make it!

Yum!!! This is totally on my "to make" list! It does sound completely wonderful for breakfast, too! (it's like fruit and milk with a little cake...sort of!)
