It is my sister's birthday and I ask her what kind of cake she wanted and she told me she wanted a very very strawberry cheese cake or a coconut cream pie. Other than putting the strawberries actually in the cheesecake, or on top I decided to do a poke cake type of cheesecake. Strawberry on top and in the middle.

You can add as many holes as you want or less. You can make them deep or shallow You can use pudding or any kind of fruit purees. It was delicious.

I have to tell you this cheesecake was so fun to make. I enjoyed watching it turn into a delicious dessert beyond my imagination.

The coconut which is one of my sisters favorites just added the perfect topping.

How to Make Strawberry Filled Coconut Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl mix cake mix softened butter and egg.
    Place in a spring form pan working it up the sides.
    Bake for 8-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
  2. Mix together softened creamed cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. When the crust is done add the cream cheese mixture bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees then turn the oven back to 300 and bake for 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  3. Run a knife around the edge and loosen the spring form pan. Cool completely.
  4. Clean strawberries and cut in half. Put into the blender with Sugar. Blend for 1 minute. It will be a strawberry puree.
  5. When the cheesecake is cool take a small funnel and poke holes over the top of the cheesecake. The fun part is eating the little middles that come out. After making the holes take the funnel again and make sure it is clean, put it in each hole and fill with the strawberry puree.
  6. After you fill all the holes pour the remainder of the puree over the top of the cheesecake and sprinkle coconut over the strawberry. You can toast the coconut if you like.
