Toasted-Coconut Refrigerator Cake





No one will ever guess that store-bought pound cakes are at the heart of this dessert.

Toasted-Coconut Refrigerator Cake

Serves: 8

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup heavy (or whipping) cream, whipped to a soft peak
  • 2 pound cakes (such as Sara Lee), about 11 ounces each
  • 2 cups Vanilla Pudding

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350� F. Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and toast in oven until golden, about 10 minutes, shaking the tray once about halfway through the cooking time. Remove and let cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, gently fold together the whipped cream and pudding. Slice each cake vertically in half, then slice each half horizontally into three �-inch layers.
  3. Line an 8-by-8-inch square pan with 4 slices of cake to make 1 layer. Top with about 1 cup of the pudding mixture, spreading to cover the cake. Repeat the process to form 3 layers, ending with the pudding mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Garnish with the toasted coconut and serve.
