In continuing with the coconut theme, here is another coconut recipe you must try! So cold here in Minnesota that its a good excuse for me to crank up the oven.
Banana-Coconut Crunch Cake
1 pkg. Banana Cake Mix (or vanilla)
1 small box Banana Cream Instant Pudding mix
1 (16 0z.) can fruit cocktail in juice
1/4 c. canola oil
1 c. flaked cocnut
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1 1/2 c. flaked coconut
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
Combine cake mix, pudding mix, fruit cocktail, eggs and oil in a large bowl. Beat for about 4 minutes. Stir in the 1c. coconut. Pour into your pan. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
For glaze: Combine sugar, butter and evaporate dmilk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in coconut. Pour over warm cake. Best served warm!
