Father’s Day, Coconut cake, and sweetened condensed milk

Don’t waste your money on sweetened condensed milk.  You can easily make your own.  I just made some for a coconut cake that I am making for hubby for Father’s Day!

Easy Coconut Cream Cake (very good and very moist!)

  • 1 box white cake mix (I used coconut oil when adding oil to the mix)
  • 1 can sweetened cond. Milk
  • 1 can cream of coconut
  • 1 bag coconut flakes ( I did not use whole bag of coconut.  Use at your own discretion.)
  • 1 large container of cool whip
  • (opt.) conf. sugar

-Bake cake, adding ½ bag of coconut flakes. Let cool completely.

-Punch holes with handle of wooden spoon along cake about ½ inch apart

-Mix can of cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk and pour evenly over the top of the cake.

-In same bowl mix entire container of cool whip and rest of coconut flakes. Can also add in confectioners sugar if desired. (better this way in my opinion, it makes a much yummier frosting.)

-Spread evenly over cake. Refrigerate immediately.

How to make sweetened condensed milk:

  • 1 c. instant nonfat dry milk
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. boiling water
  • 3 tbsp. butter

Beat all ingredients together. Process in blender until smooth and store in refrigerator. Makes 1 1/4 cups or the equivalent of 1 can.

Another tip:

  • Store your nonfat dry milk in the freezer.  If you don’t use it that often, like myself, it will keep much longer this way.
