Ingredients

  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • TOPPING:
  • 1-1/2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 13x9-in. pan with cooking spray.
Beat cake mix, egg whites, water and coconut on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium 2 minutes. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes.
Mix milk and extract. Using a large meat fork, poke holes in cake. Gently spread half of the milk mixture over cake; let stand 3 minutes. Spread with remaining milk mixture; cool 1 hour.
Spread with whipped topping; sprinkle with toasted coconut. Refrigerate, covered, until cold, about 4 hours. Yield: 15 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast coconut, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

"Made this for a family bbq. Everyone raved about how moist it was. My mom didn't even guess that the frosting was cool whip and she is a cake decorator. This recipe is a keeper!"
