This is probably the most luscious cake I've ever eaten in my life, and my family has expected to see one on every Holiday table since I made the first one back in the 60's.
It can be decorated by adding the red and/or green maraschino cherries when ready to serve. Be sure to drain them well or they'll turn your cake pink or green.
I hope your family likes it as well as mine does. Enjoy!
Combine cake mix, egg whites, oil, milk and one can coconut. Mix well.
Pour into greased and lightly floured 9"x12" cake pan (1/2 sheet cake size), and bake in a preheated 350º F oven for 20-25 minutes.
Make holes in warm cake with meat fork, and pour the can of Cream of Coconut over cake. When cool, combine the second can of coconut with the large container of Cool Whip and frost the cake right in the pan.
Chill for several hours of overnight before serving.
Keeps well in the refrigerator if you cover it tightly.

Oh my goodness........I'm drooling!!! Thanx for the recipe!!!
Where do you buy cream of coconut? I have never noticed in the supermarket. I have bought coconut milk. I have a coconut tree. Too bad I don't know how to cream those coconuts. I guess I should look that up. They are delicious, though. This cake sounds good enough for company.
