Easy as pie, because it uses a cake mix! You can easily substitute other fruits for the strawberries, including canned pie fillings. Sometimes it's easier to combine the three milks before pouring over the cake - as it seems to absorb easier. I left the recipe as written. In the past, my niece made it with a thin layer of apple pie filling and substituted a light sprinkling of cinnamon sugar for the coconut. Yum!
