Ingredients

1 x cake mix, devils food
*
14 ounces cream of coconut
e.g. Coco Lopez or Vitarroz
*
14 ounces milk, sweetened condensed
fat free or regular
1 pint heavy whipping cream
*
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions

Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on package for a 13" x 9" pan. Remove from oven. While cake is still hot, poke holes in the top using a wooden skewer or fork.

Whisk together the cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk. Pour evenly over the top of the still warm cake (the cake will soak it all up). Cool cake completely.

When cake is completely cooled, whip the heavy cream, adding in the confectioner's sugar, until stiff peaks are formed. Spread over the cooled cake and sprinkle with the toasted coconut.

This cake must be refrigerated.

is "cream of coconut" different from coconut milk?

Yes, very. Cream of coconut is sweetened and very thick, used primarily in cocktail making, especially of pina coladas. Coconut milk is thinner and generally not sweetened. It is used in many Asian cuisines as a sauce or soup base.
