This Coconut Cake Is Easy, Delectable, and Quick

If you are ever in a pinch and need to make an incredible dessert, then this recipe is the one for you! Even though it's made from a box mix, it will not disappoint; it's so moist and so easy. Adding the real cream of coconut milk mixed with sweetened condensed milk after baking makes this cake extraordinarily moist. It truly is the best coconut cake that I have ever tasted, and it could not be any easier to make.

This over-the-top moist and creamy cake is by no means the fanciest cake. However, it is truly a cinch to make and extraordinarily moist and delicious, which is all that matters—especially when time constraints come into play.

One of my friends at work shared this recipe with me. I made it at Christmas as one of the desserts, and it was gone in no time. It was certainly a hit with those who love coconut. Plus, it helped me too, as I needed the extra time to cook and prepare everything else for that wonderful feast!

Ingredients to make this easy and moist coconut cake

Ingredients

  • 1 box white cake mix, (I used Duncan Hines Classic White)
  • 3 large egg whites, cake mix Ingredient
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, cake mix Ingredient
  • 1 cup water, cake mix Ingredient
  • 1 (15 oz.) can real cream of coconut milk, (I used Coco Lopez)
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened, condensed milk, (I prefer Eagle Brand Borden)
  • 1 (8 oz.) bag coconut flakes, (I prefer Baker's Angel Flake Coconut, Sweetened)
  • 1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, (I prefer Cool Whip)

Instructions

  1. Follow the instructions on cake mix: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease sides and bottom of a 13 X 9-inch pan with shortening or oil spray. I used a clear glass pan here. Flour lightly.
  3. Blend cake mix, oil, and egg whites in a large bowl at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds). Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
  4. Then pour the mixture into 13 X 9 inch greased and floured pan. Bake for approximately 23–28 minutes. It is done when a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  5. While still warm, poke holes into the baked cake with a utility fork.
  6. Mix together the sweetened condensed milk with the real cream of coconut milk.
  7. Pour the mixture slowly over the cake while still warm and into the poked holes.
  8. Once the mixture is absorbed and cooled, just spread the Cool Whip on top of the cake and sprinkle with coconut as desired.
  9. Keep refrigerated.
  10. Enjoy!

Don't Miss This Step If You Want an Extra Moist Cake

Although, this mixture may seem like a bit too much when you are pouring it on top of the warm cake, you must allow the mixture time to absorb into the holes of the cake. This is the secret to what makes this cake so incredibly moist!

Make This Tasty Dessert Your Own

When adding the whipped topping and coconut flakes to the cake, it is totally up to you to add however much you'd like to. Here, I only used an 8-ounce container of Cool Whip, which was plenty, and an 8-ounce package of coconut flakes. However, it is perfectly fine to double both if you so desire!

I do hope you remember this scrumptious recipe when you are pressed for time and you need an unforgettably moist cake recipe to please everyone!

Also remember to keep this cake refrigerated, and it will still be as moist as the first day you made it.

Questions & Answers

Question: My coconut cream came as a sort of hard substance on top and watery at the bottom, is that normal?

Answer: Really? Hmmm ... that’s never happened to me. The only thing I can imagine is that it may have separated over time, and you may have needed to shake the can before opening it. Did you check the expiration date on it?

Question: Can this cake recipe be made in layers?

Answer: Being that this is so moist from adding in the cream of coconut, I think it best to make it a one layer sheet cake. You can give it a try though, but the weight may cause it to crumble.

Question: I’ve never used coconut milk, is there a difference in coconut milk and cream of coconut milk?

Answer: Actually, cream of coconut milk is what you should use.

Hi Marrion,

It is indeed perfect for a hot summer day! Thank you for your comment. Enjoy!

Marrion on August 20, 2019:

This cake is WONDERFUL!

Perfect on a hot summer day!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 21, 2018:

Hi Tamara, thank you for commenting! So glad you like it. I agree, it is delicious.

Tamara on November 21, 2018:

I’ve made this cake multiple times and it’s absolutely delicious. Thank your for sharing!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 13, 2018:

Hi Janisa,

This recipe is certainly adaptable and you can make this into a divine recipe by making the cake homemade and yet still using the Cream of Coconut and Sweetened condensed milk and poking the holes, as I think that’s what makes this easy recipe taste so great. Even making a cream cheese frosting would raise the bar.

So please adapt the recipe to make your own divine creation! There are no rules.

Janisa from Earth on August 13, 2018:

It's hard to find many cake mixes here in Brazil, but I'll make it sometime later, or I'll use a simple homemade cake batter instead of the cake mix and see how it goes.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 10, 2018:

Hi Janisa, Exactly! It certainly doesn’t taste like a cake mix and is so moist and yummy. This recipe is great when you’re in a pinch for something fast yet delicious.

Thank you for checking out this easy recipe. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out.

Janisa from Earth on August 10, 2018:

Interesting recipe! I However, I prefer not to use cake mixes (or anything similar) when baking. Maybe I'll give this a try since it looks very simple and doesn't look like something that would taste like a 'cake mix' cake.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on December 12, 2017:

Hi Kristen,

If you need something super fast and good, this one is a great choice! Of course you can adapt your own frosting recipe but for the easiest one around, here you go. Sorry for missing your comment then.

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on October 27, 2015:

Faith, this looks delicious. I would love to try to make this for the holidays or for my church, maybe, if I can excel in baking. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe.

You're welcome. My pleasure. Welcome to HubPages. I see you have many interesting topics you have written on already!

Keisha Hunter from Kingston, Jamaica on November 08, 2014:

Thank you Faith, I definitely will and hope that you are enjoying your weekend as well.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on November 08, 2014:

Hello Keisha,

So nice to meet you. Oh, yes, this recipe is certainly adaptable to use whichever products of your choice and the results I am sure will be just, if not more, delicious and moist. This recipe is concentrating on convenience of ease and still remaining deliciously moist.

Woo, the freshly blended coconut milk would be so amazing to use no doubt about it! Yes, please give me an update after you have a chance to try this recipe with your freshly blended coconut milk.

I appreciate you reading.

I hope your weekend is lovely.

Blessings

Keisha Hunter from Kingston, Jamaica on November 08, 2014:

This really looks great! I have a propensity to change up a few things when i'm baking and feel i'd do same for this, not change in the sense of substitute, just type/brand etc. I'd especially want to try freshly blended coconut milk over the tinned stuff, but I know the latter is more convenient. Hopefully I can do an update post when I do try this.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on October 11, 2014:

Hi Dear Jo,

Thanks for the "yummy" ... well, actually, my recipe is not raspberries or strawberry, just coconut using the real coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk to pour into the holes, which makes it extra moist, easy and delicious. I just added the video, as it is an easy coconut cake recipe too but with raspberries LOL.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

God bless.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on October 11, 2014:

Hi Dear Eddy,

So great to see you! You have been missed. I am glad you may try this one. Hope it is delicious. I appreciate the vote up.

Blessings always

Jo_Goldsmith11 on October 10, 2014:

This looks really yummy! I am allergic to raspberries. But I can make the strawberry cake. Voted this up for awesome, interesting and yummy!

We need a *yummy* button! Sending love, hugs & blessings!

Eiddwen from Wales on October 10, 2014:

Mmm I have been doing quite a bit of cooking lately and this will fit in nicely. Thanks for sharing Faith and voted up for sure.

Hi Linda (Sunshine625),

Well, then you will love this easy one here that is oh so moist and delicious! It doesn't get any better, especially if you are pressed for time, but still want a good moist cake that melts in your mouth.

Thank you so much for stopping by my side of HP Town and I appreciate the pin.

Enjoy!

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on September 23, 2014:

I love coconut cake, but never attempted to bake one. I pinned this recipe to give it a try! Thanks for sharing! :)

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on September 23, 2014:

Hi peachpurple,

It is very rich and moist for sure! Lemon sounds amazing too.

Thank you so much for stopping by my side of HP Town.

Blessings

peachy from Home Sweet Home on September 23, 2014:

must be very sweet and moist, i did try lemon, very sweet

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on September 16, 2014:

Hi ChitrangadaSharan,

It is very delicious indeed! Yes, it is the poked holes in the cake that really do make all the difference as to absorbing the real cream of coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk that makes the cake so delicious. You can use any cake recipe you want, but to make it extra moist, just poke the holes and fill away, and it is guaranteed to be delicious and so moist. Enjoy!

I truly appreciate the vote up and pin.

Blessings always

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on September 16, 2014:

This looks simply delicious and tempting!

You have given a special and different touch to it by making holes and letting the cake absorb the real, sweet juices. I would definitely try this.

Voted up and pinned on my dessert board!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 16, 2014:

Hi frogyfish!

I appreciate you hopping over to my side of HP Town this day. Yes, that is just in the cake mix instructions, so just follow whatever cake mix you choose. Or if you love from scratch, then go for it! Here, this recipe is so convenient, yet turns out so moist and delicious in no time at all. And you can always adapt the frosting by maybe adding 8 oz. of cream cheese with the Cool Whip, which is really amazing and adds more consistency. I love coconut too and many love fresh coconut, so however one wants to adapt the recipe is great, but the key ingredients to its moistness is the Real Cream of Coconut Milk mixed with the sweetened condensed milk.

Let me know how it turns out. Hope you enjoy it.

Have a great rest of the weekend.

Blessings always

frogyfish from Central United States of America on August 16, 2014:

Coconut grabs me and your recipe sounds wonderful! Like something I must soon make! I have never used the coconut milk except in a pie, and I will likely double the coconut topping as you suggested. But I must ask, is the cup of water added with the oil and eggs, or is it used first as you said to follow cake instructions? Seems like either would work...? (I'd, be eating mouthfuls of coconut shreds while I'm mixing... :-) ) Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe. It is a keeper for sure.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 14, 2014:

Hello Doris,

So lovely to see you stopping by to read this day. It is truly delicious ... I must say so myself. So easy, moist and delectable. I am glad you will give it a try. Let me know how it turns out.

Blessings always

Doris H. Dancy from Yorktown, Virginia on August 14, 2014:

Wow! This cake looks delicious. I am definitely going to try it.

Brie, I have already made the change and moved up my amazon ad to a more appropriate spot, thanks to you.

Blessings always

Brie Hoffman from Manhattan on August 13, 2014:

You're welcome Faith.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 13, 2014:

Oh, really. I will take your advice, Brie. Thank you for keeping me in the know. I knew there was some issue with the ebay ads, but did not know exactly. Yes, that would be time consuming with your having that many hubs. I will slowly do the same.

That is interesting your earnings went up!

Bless you for sharing

Brie Hoffman from Manhattan on August 13, 2014:

You can but you can only use one per capsule..however, I would use only one so that leaves room for google ads.

I took all my ebay ads off, it took awhile because I have over 200 hubs but my earnings went up, so it was worth it.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 13, 2014:

Hi Brie,

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. Oh, really! Can we use more than one Amazon ad then to replace the ebay ads?

I appreciate the info.

Blessings

Brie Hoffman from Manhattan on August 13, 2014:

This looks absolutely delish! Faith, I noticed you have ebay ads on your hub. You should take those off and replace them with amazon because we aren't being paid for ebay ads any longer.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 09, 2014:

Wow, thank you, dear Peg, for sharing that with me! It seems to be getting a lot of attention, surprisingly. It has tons of views up into the thousands ...who knew? I guess people truly love easy and moist coconut desserts. I almost did not post it due to its simplicity, but obviously that is what people want in their face-paced lives nowadays ... something deliciously moist and over-the-top easy. Bless you and yours.

Peg Cole from Northeast of Dallas, Texas on August 09, 2014:

Today I received a notice that eight people have re pinned your moist coconut cake recipe on Pinterest! It sure looks good. I actually bought the ingredients this week and plan to make one of these soon.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 05, 2014:

Hi Jo, bless you : ) ...yes, that is me. I snapped it Saturday night with my cell phone. My daughter would be upset as she does not have a bit of gray at her part yet hee hee. I will have to tell her that though. Yes, He is faithful to meet all of our needs and He will never forsake us. I hope you are well? I work a good distance away from home like you do, so I am tired by the time I get home. Today, there was a terrible traffic jam on the Interstate ...deadlocked. finally, arrived home a bit ago. I hope to get a good photo of my sweet puppy with me this night, who is as big as a horse lol as I have a question to ask about training. God bless you and peace and love from our sweet Lord God.

Joanna Chandler from On Planet Earth on August 05, 2014:

Okay Faith thanks for the feed back certainly i am AWESOME. My Father is king over all my floods I am still and I know that he is God. Well that's life sometimes we get too busy or it becomes to busy for us glad its slowing down a bit for you. Looking forward to it.

Peace and Love from God our father

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 04, 2014:

Hi Audrey,

Oh, yes, take a day off and make this delicious cake. Warning ... however, it is wise to invite others over to try it, as you may wind up eating most of the cake right by yourself LOL ... I know I could, as it is so scrumptious and, to boot, easy.

Enjoy!

Audrey Howitt from California on August 04, 2014:

Had to come back and look at this--I am heading home for a day off from music camp and am thinking about making this while I am home! Looks so very yummy!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 04, 2014:

Hi Jo (Lady Fiddler), Thank you for checking on me! Well ...life has been so busy this summer that I have not had a chance or even time to write anything, but I do have some in the works. I am ready to publish again now that summer activities seem to be slowing down a bit. I may be publishing something this week : ) ... I hope you have a lovely week ahead. Hugs

Joanna Chandler from On Planet Earth on August 04, 2014:

Hey Faith did you stop writing? I haven't seen anything from you lately.

Hope all is well :) is that you in the pic or your daughter

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on August 03, 2014:

Hello starstream,

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. It is an important natural addition ... the coconut cream, but this recipe is far from healthy lol, but easy and certainly moist. You are so wise to cut back on sugar and we have done so too, as my husband is pre-diabetic. Oh, I must try the organic coconut cream. There is your piece right there.

Have a wonderful week ahead.

Dreamer at heart from Northern California on August 03, 2014:

This recipe sounds tasty. The use of coconut cream is an important natural addition to our diet. I have to cut back on the sugar content and just eat a small serving though. I have ordered organic coconut cream on E-bay several times now. Thanks for sharing. I volunteer to get in the line for taste testing.

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on July 24, 2014:

Hi Peg, You are so kind and most generous in your commenting. Thank you so much for the pin. I know this simple recipe does not compare to all of your wonderful from scratch recipes. Your hubs sure do make one's mouth water with all of the yummy recipes you share! I hope you have a great rest of the week.

Peg Cole from Northeast of Dallas, Texas on July 23, 2014:

Hi Faith,

I just had to come by for another look at this wonderful and useful recipe. I'll be pinning it to my Food Ideas board and definitely will try it out sometime soon. Yummy looking, well explained and beautifully illustrated.

Hi Dim,

Thank you so much for stopping by here this day. LOL, it is surprisingly delicious, yet SO very easy ... my kind of cake.

Of course, the recipe can be adapted to any recipe and just poke the holes and add the ingredients that makes it so very moist, the real cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk combination.

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

Ohhh, fresh grated cocounut is the best, truly, although a chore.

I will come back and let you know how my cake turns out., Mary

Thank you for stopping by to read this day.

Happy Fourth!

Faith Reaper (author) from southern USA on July 04, 2014:

Hi Dear Mary,

You are so kind. It is certainly very moist using the real cream of coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk poured into the poked holes. I believe any cake mix or even better from scratch cake, plus any frosting would be as awesome as ever, even better! I just made a flag cake for the Fourth with strawberries and blueberries and I added cream cheese to cool whip, plus powered sugar to make the frosting and it was awesome as well.

So, yes, anything you can come up with using the real cream of coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk combination I believe will be fabulous.

I appreciate the vote up, share and pin

Happy Fourth dear Mary

Let me know how your version turns out!

Audrey Howitt from California on July 04, 2014:

Oh make my mouth just water!

Mary Hyatt from Florida on July 04, 2014:

Oh, my I can almost taste this cake just by looking at your great photos. I've never heard of a recipe like this one where you pour over the cake. Yes, it certainly would be nice and moist! I have bookmarked this coconut cake to make very soon.

Wonder how it would be using just plain white frosting instead of the Cool Whip?

Hello Blond Logic again,

So nice of you to visit my Hub pages this day! Oh, wow, fresh coconuts on a farm in Brazil!!! That sounds like paradise to me! Yes, with fresh coconut and from scratch and adding the real coconut milk, would make this simple and easy recipe into a gourmet one for sure!

I appreciate the pin.

I would love to know how your wonderful adjustments go if you do try this one, except making it the real deal, so extra yummy indeed!

I too will be pinning.

Hello Better Yourself, I appreciate you stopping by to check out this recipe. So glad that you and your mom love coconut! Hope you get a chance to give this recipe a try.

Hello Thefedorows, I do hope you get to try this one when you do have sweetened condensed milk and real cream of coconut milk on hand, as those are the two most important ingredients for guaranteed moistness. I appreciate the pin and vote up!

Hi great stuff, yes, guaranteed! However, being it is so easy, it will not keep you in the kitchen very long except maybe after baking and then eating as it is hard to eat just one piece. Lol

This looks very yummy!! I don't keep sweetened condensed milk or cream of coconut on hand, so this is one I will have to pin and plan for a special occasion! Looks like a great recipe! Pinned and voted up.
