Vanilla Coconut Poke Cake!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
So by now you know my passion for poke cakes! Easy peasy, right? I love to make them for my Honey, because… well… he loves cake and sometimes I just don’t have a lot of time! I am going to make this one extra special for him today! I LOVE him… and Valentine’s Day is coming soon so I thought I would make this one just for him! Plus I was at my mother’s house several months ago and was looking in her china hutch. There was this beautiful plate that I just had to make a pretty Valentine’s Day post with. This plate was my grandma’s… It is so pretty!
(Really??? I forgot the whipped topping in the photo!!)
- 1 box moist white cake mix
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 3 large egg whites
- 2 boxes vanilla pudding (I like the cook n serve)
- 1 tub whipped topping
- 1 cup flake coconut
Valentine’s Day additions:
- A little love
- Red food coloring
- Red sprinkles
Prepare cake mix and bake as directed for a 9 x 13” pan. Let cool slightly. Poke several holes through the cake. I use the opposite end of my wooden spoon.
Prepare pudding as directed on package (you can use instant or cook and serve) for this cake I added a few drops of red food coloring to make my pudding pink. Pour pudding over the cake, using a spatula to spread and push down into the holes. Refrigerate and let pudding cool.
Spread whipped topping over the pudding.
Sprinkle with the coconut
some pretty colored sprinkles to finish!
Cut and serve.
