Ingredients

  • 1 package 18-1/4 ounces white cake mix
  • 1/3 cup raspberry preserves
  • 1 cup 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut divided
  • 1 tub (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping thawed

Instructions

  • Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions in two 9-in. round baking pans. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  • When cool, spread raspberry preserves over the top of one of the cake layers to within 1 inch of the edge. Place the second layer over the first.
  • For filling, combine sour cream and sugar in a large bowl. Stir in ¾ cup coconut. Fold in whipped topping. Spread frosting over the top and sides of the cake. Refrigerate cake for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to allow frosting to set. Sprinkle remaining ¾ cup of coconut over the top and sides of the cake.
