Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Generously grease bottoms and sides of 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with shortening. Line pans with waxed paper; grease paper and lightly flour.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, butter, coconut milk, water and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour batter into pans. Bake 33 to 38 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Remove waxed paper. Cool completely, about 40 minutes.
  • 3 In medium bowl, mix 2 cups of the coconut, the sugar and sour cream. Spoon 2 cups of the mixture into large bowl; stir in whipped topping, coconut extract and 1 cup coconut. Cut each cake horizontally to make 2 layers. Spread one-third (about 2/3 cup) of the coconut-sour cream mixture on cut side of 1 layer. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining layer, cut side down. Frost top and side of cake with coconut topping mixture. Press remaining coconut into top and side of cake. Cover; refrigerate 8 hours before serving.
