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!


1 package yelllow cake mix
1 20-oz can crushed pineapple with juice; (I use fresh and cut myself)
can't find canned here so I use fresh and cut)
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
5 3/10 ounces vanilla pudding mix; (Jell-O brand is best)
3 cups milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
3/4 cup flaked coconut; toasted
(I; can't find this packaged at the store either so
1/2 cup chopped pecans; optional

Original recipe makes 1



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.

This was the first cake that I've made in a very long time and everybody absolutely loved it. I added a photo of the end result. I will definitely be making this again.

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.

I can see how this cake may be better than sex, okay you right it's not really better than sex but I'm going to make it real close to it I'm going to add toffee pieces on the top along with candied pecans my family doesn't like coconut.
