Ok so I reviewed this a few months ago and I said I added some sweetened condensed milk to sweeten up the milk & coconut cream bcuz the coco cream was not sweet at all. Today I made the cake again and this time decided to use Goya brand coconut cream and it's sweet! So there's sweet coconut cream and unsweetened coconut cream...never knew that until today! Hope this helps!
I was a little apprehensive about trying this cake. I usually don't favor Tres Leches cake, as it is usually to wet for my taste. This recipe sounded promising and I found that it was perfectly moist, with the right amount of sweetness. The flavor of the cake is on the delicate side so if you are looking for an intense pina colada flavor, or something that is very sweet this cake isn't it. Otherwise enjoy!
Love this cake! I am not a fan of traditional tres leche cake. It is just too wet. This cake is moist and light and delicious! I made it last week for my family. They loved it. I want to make it again but I'm having trouble finding cream of coconut! I wish I remember where I bought it before.
Amazing! I thought this might be too soggy once I pored the coconut cream on but it wasn't. Also instead of regular milk I used coconut milk. I also whipped 2.5 cups of heavy cream with 1/2 cup sugar and it turned out to be a perfect ratio. RAVE REVIEWS a!!
Cake mixes are not as large now. The one I bought Duncan Heinz the only one I could find without pudding was 16.5 ounces so we added 1.7 ounces of flour. I was worried about whether or not the pineapple should have been drained or not. I didn't drain it. I used more toasted coconut on top probably about a cup. We also added a little rum to the whipping cream. The cake was a HUGE hit at the dinner party to which we took it. We'll probably cut down on the milk next time. YUM!!
Everyone that tried this cake LOVED it (even people who claim to NOT like cake)! It is not too sweet and not too wet for my liking...just perfect. But as other reviewers have done I also used about 1/4 of a cup of toasted coconut on top. Thanks for a great recipe!
A really moist light not over-whelmingly sweet but sweet enough to hit the spot. Really simple to make. Everyone one loved it and had at least two pieces even people who claimed not to like coconuts could not resist seconds.
This was okay. Won't make again. I realize it's a Tres Leche cake but it's just too wet for us. Recommend using only half the amount of coconut cream on top. Extremely hard to find coconut cream these days so I wouldn't be likely to try this again anyway.
