Introduction

I have yet to find a full fat version of coconut cake that I like better than this low fat version! I have yet to find a full fat version of coconut cake that I like better than this low fat version!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 box, Duncan Hines Coconut Supreme Cake Mix
    1 can Sprite Zero (or a little more is ok, if you happen to have a 20 oz bottle. Just increase the bake time)
    1 tub Cool Whip Free, the average size, not the big one
    .5 tsp Coconut Extract
    1-4 serving pkg of Jello Fat Free Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding (or cheesecake, it's what I use)
    1.5 cups skim milk
    .5 cup Sweetened Coconut Flakes (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350, and spray 9x13 pan with nonstick spray.


In bowl combine cake mix and sprite zero, mix until well blended (I use my mixer on low for a couple minutes)


Bake for 25-45 minutes depending on the type of pan you used, and also the amount of sprite. When toothpick in the center comes out clean it's done.


Once cake is done, and has cooled some, poke holes in cake with a butter knife or the end of a wooden spoon. Combine milk and pudding, and spread over cake, (be sure to get it in the holes.)


Combine cool whip and coconut extract stir until blended, then add shredded coconut if desired. Spread over cake/pudding, cover and refridgerate any leftovers. This cake is better the older it gets, so the next day or even the day after it's fantastic! It also freezes well.

    I made cupcakes for a coworker's birthday, and used 4 oz of coconut water and 8 oz of sprite zero. The cupcakes are light and fluffy, and the pudding adds a nice touch! I'm not a huge coconut fan, but these were pretty good...and got rave reviews! - 5/25/11

    I made this cake with a white cake mix & brought it to my family reunion. Needless to say, everyone was raving about it! I was wishing I'd put a piece aside for myself to take home, but it was gone in no time! - 8/14/08

    My store didn't have the Coconut Cake Mix, so I made it with the Pineapple one. It was sooooo good! Absolutely right...it does improve after a day in the fridge. We have enjoyed it over a couple days and froze the rest. My boyfriend can't stand Cool Whip and he loves it! - 7/9/08

  • So good. Used white cake mix with pudding in it and store brand diet soda. Didn't have ff st pudding, so I halved what I had on hand - banana pudding mix (1.8oz), mixed with 1c of skim milk. Only used 1/4 c coconut. Will try it with the coconut water next time. - 12/29/14
