Well I didn't melt it, but texturally they are almost exact, so I used the same measurement for the ricotta as the butter.

OMG!!!!!!!!!! This was so delicious!!!!!!! I made it with French Vanilla cake mix instead. I made it early afternoon & cut it late evening. It was a little messy to cut. But I must admit, its so much better when you let it sit overnight. This is the recipe I've been looking for!!! Thank you so much!!!!

Coconut Cake


1 package butter/yellow cake mix
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flaked coconut
8 ounce container whipped topping

Prepare the cake as directed in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Cool 15 minutes then poke holes in the cake with a fork. Meanwhile combine the milk, sugar and 1/2 cup of the coconut in a pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Spoon this mixture over the warm cake. Cool. When cool fold 1/2 cup of the coconut into the whipped topping. Spread over the cake evenly. Sprinkle with the remaining coconut. Chill overnight or all day if made in the morning. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Your Welcome.  I am glad that it worked out for you and it is a cake better the next day rather than freshly made.  Did you eat the whole thing yourself?  ha ha.

 I am the evil food fairy LOL.  I do not like coconut personally so this cake would be safe around me.  I am more of a cookie or pie girl.  I bet they enjoyed the homemade cake.

I LOVE coconut. You could make this & leave the coconut out. Just frost it with the cool whip & maybe some fresh strawberries, slivered almonds and/or shaved chocolate. Well keep the delicious simple recipes coming!!!! I love to cook & bake. & the baking season is almost here for me. Its still a little hot here in Southern California. I just bought about 5 boxes of Strawberry Pillsbury cake mix on clearance for .35 lol. So I need recipes for that :D omg! I need to shut up!!! I'm getting hungry! Damn Aunt Flo just had to make an appearance today!! Ugh!!
