Coconut Cream Poke Cake

I’m really thrilled to be sharing this next recipe. First of all, because we made it recently to celebrate my Momma’s birthday. Secondly, because it’s another one of those easy cakes to make but tastes outta-this-world good.

Recipe Notes

If you like you can toast your coconut first. Keep cake refrigerated. I think this cake tastes best after it has cooled for at least a couple of hours. It gives it time for the coconut flavors to really soak in.
