I wish for Spring

After receiving 8 inches of snow this past weekend I am wishing for SPRING
I was looking through my pictures over the past weekend and found this pictures from last spring
and decided to participate with our most wonderful hostess Tootsie at Tootsie Time for
Fertilizer Friday
These are pictures from spring of 2009, my first attempt at Tulips, I was very proud of myself that I could get them to grow. Please visit Tootsie at Tootsie Time, her flowers and garden beds are to die for, and she always has great advice for us want to be Tootsies'. Thanks for stopping by. Patricia

Coconut Poke Cake

I am participating in Foodie Friday hosted by Michael at Designs by Gollum, check our her blog for more delicious recipes
This week I am sharing with you a recipe for Coconut Poke Cake, so simple but so good.
You will need:
1 package white cake mix
1 (14 oz.) can cream of coconut
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (16 oz.) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (8 oz.) package of flaked coconut

Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions. I made my cake in a 9x13 baking dish.
Remove cake from the oven. While still hot, using a fork, poke holes all over the top of the cake.
Mix cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk together. Pour over the top of the still hot cake.

Can you see in the picture below how I poked holes
in the cake and poured the liquid miixture over the
hot cake.

Let the cake cool completely then frost with the whipped topping and top with the flaked coconut.
Keep cake refrigerated.

The picture is dark but it makes a very pretty cake that is so good and moist.
Hope you will give it a try. I think it would be pretty at Easter using colored cocont.
Thanks for stopping today. Patricia
