This is a very easy cake to make and even easier to eat. Make it ahead of time, and refrigerate for a day or overnight to allow flavors to combine and be at their very best. Cool and delicious treat for hot summer days.


  • 1 box white cake mix (for 2-layer cake)
  • 1 15-20 oz can crushed pineapple (juice packed), do not drain
  • 1 box vanilla pudding (4 serving size)
  • 1 carton Cool Whip (12-16 oz size)


Bake cake as directed. Remove from oven. Cool 5 minutes. Cover with pineapple (juice and all).

Make vanilla pudding as directed. Carefully spread over pineapple. Cover pineapple with Cool Whip (as much as you like) Keep refrigerated. It keeps perfectly for several days.

Servings: 10-12
Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 35-40 (plus refrigeration time) Minutes

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.




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

This is a yummy yellow cake made with mandarin orange. The frosting is made out of vanilla pudding, and canned pineapple mixed with thawed whipped topping.

I have changed it by using the pineapple juice instead of the water for the cake recipe. The original recipe said to just make the cake according to directions which would mean using water. I like the more tropical taste that using the pineapple in the place of water brings to this most lovely and moist cake.


  • 1 (18 1/2 oz) yellow cake mix
  • 1 11 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple (keeping the juice)
  • 1 Pkg dry vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 8 or 12 oz. container whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 pieces mandarin oranges for topping


  1. Preheat oven according to package directions. (Probably to 350 degrees F, but check your cake mix box for temperature.)

  2. To make cake, prepare batter according to directions on your cake mix box. Use reserved pineapple juice instead of the water.
  3. Beat in mandarin oranges until well-incorporated.
  4. Bake as directed. Times will vary; refer to your cake mix box.
  5. Let cake cool completely.

  6. To make frosting, combine pineapple and pudding mix in a large bowl.
  7. Fold in whipped topping until thoroughly combined.
  8. Spread frosting over cake and place in the refrigerator until chilled.
  9. Before serving, you can top with additional mandarin oranges if you like.

Mix ingredients well until fluffy. Put in 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Poke with tooth pick to make sure cake is done.

I got this recipe close to 30 years ago from a teenager in the church we attended and have used it time and again. Since most of the ingredients are in the pantry, it's one you can pull out when you need a quick dessert.


An added bonus is there is minimal cleanup.
