fun cake mix

This recipe is a fun and easy twist on a classic box of yellow cake mix.  My mom is a good cook.  This is another quick and easy dessert that she wrote in her personal cookbook years ago.  The handwritten instructions were a bit vague, probably because the recipe is so easy!

The most difficult part of the recipe for me was finding cream of coconut at the grocery store.  Next time I’ll just order it on here.

Step one: Bake the yellow cake mix as directed in a 9×13 pan

Step two: Take the small, round end of a wooden spoon and poke about 24 holes in the cake

Step three: Pour a 13 ounce can cream of coconut and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk over the holes

Next layer: 1 can of crushed pineapple, drained

Next layer: 1 container whipped topping

Sprinkle coconut on top
