Coconut Cream (or Dream...) Cake

I found this Coconut Cream Cake recipe on Pinterest and just HAD to try it. I adore all things coconut and had never made a cake with this feature flavor, believe it or not. It's super simple as it starts with a boxed cake mix. It's similar to a tres leches cake as it's super moist and flavorful throughout. Here's the recipe and if you are an Almond Joy lover like myself, you've got to give it a try!

Cake:
1 white cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 pkg. vanilla pudding mix (just the powder, do not make the pudding)
Filling:
7 oz. coconut milk (can be found in the Asian food aisle...took me some help to find!)
7 oz. sweetened condensed milk
Topping:
1 tub whipped topping
1 cup coconut, plus more to garnish

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and prepare cake mix, pouring into a 9X13 pan and baking about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Once cake is cooled, mix the sweetened condensed milk and coconut milk and, after poking holes in cake with fork, pour over top. (You'll only need half the can of both so I froze the rest for another cake..) Allow to cool in fridge about an hour then top with the whipped topping mixed with 1 cup coconut. Then, if you really want to get fancy, toast a little extra coconut to sprinkle over the top. Enjoy!
