This is a cool, moist and very sweet cake. It's very easy to make and is always a big hit. It's a favorite for the 4th of July (decorated with strawberries and blueberries), Christmas (mint leaves and cherries) and Easter (jelly beans, etc...) Delicious!

(plus ingredients per instructions on box, such as eggs, oil, water)
1/2 tsp
coconut extract, divided
2 oz
cream cheese, room temperature

How to Make COCONUT REFRIGERATOR CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare and bake cake, as directed on box, for a 9"x13" glass dish, adding 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract to batter.
  • 2While cake is baking, whip cream cheese, in a medium mixing bowl, until fluffy.
  • 3Gradually mix in the cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk and remaining 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract until well combined. Set aside.
  • 4When finished baking, remove from oven and immediately poke holes all over the cake. (A bamboo chopstick or wooden skewer works well.)
  • 5Pour milk mixture very slowly over the cake, saturating every hole (the slower, the better.)
  • 6Refrigerate cake until cold (about 2 hrs. or more.)
  • 7Spread whipped topping over cake and sprinkle with the coconut.
  • 8Decoration tips: For Christmas garnish with mint leaves and maraschino cherries or red raspberries; for Independence day use strawberries and blueberries to create stars and stripes; for Easter use jelly beans, pastel malted milk eggs or Peeps.
  • 9Refrigerate leftovers.
