Why I Love This Recipe

I took this cake to a class reunion planning date and everyone loved it. It was in Southern Living (Jun p. 143) magazine. If you like coconut this is absolutely wonderful. By Julie Stein, Birmingham, AL

Ingredients You'll Need

3 large eggs
8 ounces sour cream
⅓ cup water
8 ½ ounces cream of coconut
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
18 ½ ounces white cake mix
Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting
8 ounces cream cheese softened
½ cup butter softened
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 ounces confectioner's sugar sifted
7 ounces sweetened coconut flakes


Beat eggs at high speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes. Add sour cream, 1/3 cup water, and next 2 ingredients, beating well after each addition. Add cake mix, beating at low speed just until blended. Beat at high speed 2 minutes. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13 x 9 inch baking pan.

Bake at 325° for 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on wire rack. Cover pan with plastic wrap, and freeze cake 30 minutes. Remove from freezer.

Spread Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting on top of chilled cake. Cover and store in refrigerator.

Note: If desired, cake can be baked in 1 greased and floured 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan for 30 to 32 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 15 servings.

For frosting beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add milk and vanilla, beating well. Gradually add sugar, beating until smooth. Stir in coconut. Julie Stein, Birmingham, Alabama
