This cool and creamy Coconut Poke Cake starts with a simple white cake and then drenched with sweet coconut pudding. Topped off with a coconut flavored whipped topping and flaked coconut. We love pudding poke cakes at my house and this one right here is no exception. I mean who doesn’t love a good coconut cake? Growing up starting around Easter and into the summer months we always had some type of coconut dessert . There is just something tropical and yummy about it. This is one of those simple cakes you pull out of the Ice Box and in warmer months and it is so refreshing. Trust me , it will be the first cake to disappear at a potluck.
