This is something I have been wanting to try for a while. It was our delayed Valentine's Day and weekly baking project for my son and I.

First - Made a box of yellow cake.  Where it said water we used milk (powdered to save the milk for coffee) and instead of oil we heated a cube of butter.
Baked in preheated oven following the directions in the box.

Then - When the cake was done, removed it from the over and used forks to poke holes evening around the top of the cake.  Mixed together a can of coconut milk and a can of sweetened condensed milk, then poured it on the still warm cake.  Used a spoon to move the syrup so it was a little more even.

Then - into the frig to cool down.  Once cool, added a container of cool whip and topped with coconut.

Served after our lunch meal.  Wow!  Delicious!  We had a quarter of the cake today - will see how it ages.  Perhaps it will be easier to cut when it has been in a frig for longer amount of time.

Catherine's Plate has a lot of variations on poke cakes - and more recipes.  I used My Fitness Pal to get the nutritional information.  I was sure it was going to be double the amount of calories and fat, so I'm pleased with the counts as they came out.
