- ¼ cup coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
DIRECTION FOR CAKE
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lightly coat 15 x 10 inch baking pan with non-stick spray for baking, (or grease and lightly flour the pan.) If you use a 13 x 9 inch pan, increase bake time according to package directions.
- Combine cake mix, eggs, coconut oil, and coconut milk and beat for 2 minutes.

- Remove from oven, and allow to cool 5-10 minutes.
- Stir the cream of coconut until well blended.
- With a fork, poke holes two thirds of the way through the cake. You don’t want to poke all the way to the bottom. Prick it every inch or so.
- Pour cream of coconut over warm cake and spread evenly.
- Cool completely.
DIRECTIONS FOR FROSTING
- Combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, butter, ¼ cup coconut milk , and vanilla, and beat until fluffy.
- Spread on cake, and sprinkle with shredded coconut.
- Refrigerate leftovers.
- This cake should be covered and kept in the fridge, but it tastes better served at room temperature. Plan accordingly.
