Do you love coconut as much as I do? I really can’t get enough of the stuff. Sometimes I even like to put coconut milk in my coffee if I’m feeling extra tropical. 

I decided to make a cake the other day, and I’ve been seeing poke cakes everywhere. It’s been a while since I made one, and now I’m wondering what took me so long! If you’re into moist cake? Poke cakes are for you. 

This Coconut Poke Cake combines white cake, cream of coconut, whipped topping, sweetened condensed milk, and flaked coconut for the most decadent dessert I’ve had in a while. We couldn’t keep our little one’s hands out of the frosting, and you really can’t blame her.

The key to this, and most poke cakes, is making sure to cover them in your sweetened sauce while they’re still warm. It really allows the cake to soak up all that sweetness, and it becomes one crazy decadent cake, bite after bite. Plus, this is the kind of cake that gets better if it’s left in the refrigerator overnight. Gotta love that! 

If you’ve got a coconut lover in your family (in mine it’s my dad!), you’ve just got to make them this Coconut Poke Cake. They’ll love you forever!
