– 1 cup fresh raspberries (or frozen, thawed)
– 1 cup sweetened condensed milk

*For the Topping:*
– 1 can coconut milk (13.5 oz), refrigerated overnight
– 1/4 cup powdered sugar
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened), toasted
– Additional fresh raspberries for garnish (optional)


1. **Prepare the Cake:**
– Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the cake mix box.
– Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
– Prepare the cake batter according to the instructions on the box.
– Gently fold in the fresh raspberries into the batter.
– Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake according to the instructions on the box.
– Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes.

2. **Poke Holes in the Cake:**
– Using the handle of a wooden spoon or a skewer, poke holes all over the cake, making sure they are evenly distributed.

3. **Pour the Sweetened Condensed Milk:**
– Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cake, making sure to fill the holes and cover the entire surface.

4. **Prepare the Coconut Topping:**
– Remove the can of coconut milk from the refrigerator and carefully open it without shaking.
– Scoop out the thick coconut cream that has solidified at the top of the can, leaving the liquid behind (you can reserve it for other uses or discard it).
– In a mixing bowl, beat the coconut cream with powdered sugar and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

5. **Assemble the Cake:**
– Spread the coconut cream topping evenly over the cake.
– Sprinkle the toasted shredded coconut over the top of the cake, covering it completely.
– If desired, garnish with additional fresh raspberries for a decorative touch.

6. **Chill and Serve:**
– Refrigerate the Raspberry Zinger Poke Cake for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the topping to set.
– Once chilled, slice and serve the cake, savoring every sweet and tangy bite!

Tips and Variations

– If you prefer a stronger coconut flavor, you can add a few drops of coconut extract to the coconut cream topping.
– Feel free to experiment with different types of berries or fruit fillings for a unique twist.
– For a quicker version, you can use a ready-made whipped topping instead of making the coconut cream topping from scratch.
