I got off kinda easy this go around, I only had to make desserts.
I wasn’t in the mood for pie after last weekend, so I made two cakes.
One of them I have already blogged about , it’s one of my favorites.
My sisters remember having this particular cake growing up but usually only at Christmas.
Due to it was “more expensive” to make so they say.
My husband and Dad love coconut cream pie,
so I figured this was a good fit for the day.
I meant to take a photo after I put the Cool Whip on top, but I forgot.
Here’s the recipe though!
Coconut Cream Cake
1 pkg. Duncan Hines Coconut Cake
I can never find this, so I just use white cake mix
1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8oz) container Cool whip
Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box. Bake as the package indicates. When the cake is done, remove from the oven. While it is still warm, put holes all over the cake using the end of a wooden spoon and be careful not to go all the way through the cake.
Mix the coconut milk & sweetened condensed milk together an pour over the top of the cake.
Next top with cool whip and sprinkle with coconut.
NOTE: I do not put cool whip on entire cake unless I think it will all be ate in one day.
Coconut milk can be found in the Asian food section of grocery store.
The last recipe I made was one that we were lucky enough to try new last weekend.
When we attended the Dyck Arboretum Luminaries.
They provided Almond Tea for a warm drink and we fell in love with it.
I was very excited when they actually had printouts of the recipe.
Here’s the recipe of goodness!
