Lite and Fluffy Pineapple Right-Side-Up Cake

Not only is this scrumptious, it is also simple to make, looks tempting, serves a big group and can be made ahead. It gets better the longer it sits.



  • Box of yellow cake mix
  • Can of crushed pineapple
  • Large container of whipped topping
  • Toasted coconut is optional


Prepare cake mix according to directions on box using a 9x15 inch pan. Remove the cake from the oven when it is through baking.

Use end of the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes in 10 or 12 places in the cake. Pour the can of crushed pineapple with its juice over the cake.

After the cake has cooled to room temperature, spread the whipped topping over the cake, swirling and mounding for effect.

You can also sprinkle toasted coconut over the top if desired.

Servings: 12-16
Time:15 Minutes Preparation Time
Approx. 40 Minutes Cooking Time
