Tres Leches Cake

1 Golden Butter (or Butter Golden) cake mix

Eggs, butter and water to make the cake

1 15-oz. can cream of coconut (not coconut milk)

1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup whole milk*

1 8-oz. carton cool whip

2-3 cups sweetened flaked coconut


Make cake per directions for a 13x9 cake.  Leave cake in pan and let it cool completely.


Once cake has cooled, poke holes all over cake using a wide-tined fork or skewer (you need about 60-70 perforations). Mix cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk and whole milk with an electric mixer until smooth.  Pour milk mixture slowly and evenly all over cake.


Cover cake and refrigerate at least four hours to allow cake to soak up milk mixture then spread evenly with cool whip and top with coconut. Refrigerate cake until ready to serve.


*Substitute up to 1/2 of the whole milk with spiced rum or regular rum if desired.
