Coconut Cream Poke Cake

Coconut cream poke cake is a dream dessert that works wonderfully well in both summer and winter. It is a creamy and smooth cake infused with the rich and pervasive flavor of coconut. This cake is easy to make, drawing on a number of commercial pre-prepared ingredients that allow this cake to come together easily and quickly.

When you make a poke cake, you fill the cake with some kind of usually rich liquid. This cake uses two kinds of milk, including cream of coconut. Be sure to not use any substitute for the coconut cream. As well, the recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk, another specialized product that is important to not substitute with another milk. Once the milks have been added to the cake, and before you add the final topping, chill the milk cake, preferably overnight. Milk infused cakes taste entirely differently once they have been allowed to chill at least overnight. When the chilling is complete, then you are ready to ice the cake, and serve.

Coconut is a rather spectacular fruit, more specifically, a one-seeded drupe. The tree is the only member of its genus, an entirely unique species. The drupe can be used to make milk, cream, rope, containers, and other products. The entire tree has been used to build structures, make clothing and serviceable items such as mats. In addition to its unique and fantastic flavor, this tree is a valuable commodity to the southern climes where it is grown. If you ever visit a deep southern country, such as Trinidad, or the Philippines, you will be offered (for purchase) a cracked coconut with a straw. The texture may be a bit challenging, but it is well worth trying a coconut when it comes fresh from the tree. The interior will be much softer, sometimes more a gel than solid.
