Better than Sex Cake It isn't really better but it is really delicious!
I use more fresh ingredients for this cake than canned. Living in French Polynesia it can be a problem to find canned pineapple but it is abundant fresh and we prefer it. This cake is just so great. Enjoy!"This was so moist and a favorite at our party. I used French vanilla cake mix instead of yellow and instead of adding 1 cup of water like the box calls for, I used a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple in juice, so buy 2 cans instead of 1. This really made every bite pineapple-y and so moist. The toasted coconut made it perfect. I just baked in the oven at 300 on a cookie sheet for about 15 min and kept stirring every 5 minutes so it browned evenly." - AuntieVwoca

Better than Sex Cake It isn't really better but it is really delicious! Preparation
Prepare and bake cake mix according to box directions for a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
While the cake is baking, combine pineapple with juice and 3/4 cup white sugar in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes until thick and syrupy, stirring occasionally.
Pierce top of hot cake with fork at 1 inch intervals. Pour pineapple mixture over cake.
Meanwhile, make pudding according to package directions and allow to set. Spread over cooled cake.
Whip cream until slightly thickened. Add confectioner's sugar and vanilla, whip until soft peaks form. Spread over top of cake. Chill cake for several hours or until the next day. Sprinkle with Coconut and pecans just before serving. Keep refrigerated.
I think this cake is better served the next day. The flavors have a chance to meld together and it is just wonderful.
