A customer at the grocery store where I work was buying the ingredients for this super easy cake, and since I LOOOVVEE coconut I had to ask what she was making. She told me she found this on allrecipies.com and has made it many times. She substitutes coconut milk for the sweetened condensed milk, but either way it sounds delicious! Keep these mostly non-perishable ingredients on hand and you'll be ready with a quick homemade cake to bring along to an impromptu weekend cookout!
