A first time cake as requested for my DH's birthday cake (2010)



Bake cake in two layers cool 20 minutes and poke a few holes in each layer and pour about 1/2 cup of pineapple juice over them.

Toast coconut, set aside

Cook pudding (you can use instant) let cool.

Cream until fluffy cream cheese with 1/3 cup pineapple juice and 1/3 can of frosting.


First layer spread half the cream cheese mixtures over top of cake. Then spread pudding over that. Now add half the pineapple chunks and sprinkle toasted coconut over that.

Add second cake layer spread the rest of the cream cheese mixture and top that with the rest of the frosting, pineapple and coconut. Enjoy.

  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 large box of vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip
  • 1 can of crushed pineapple
  • 1 small bag of coconut (toasted in the oven for a few minutes until golden brown)


Mix cake according to directions and bake as directed. Let it cool. Make the instant pudding up while it is cooling/baking so it will set up. After cake is cooled, poke holes in it with a fork. Layer the crushed pineapple, then the vanilla pudding, next the Cool Whip and lastly the toasted coconut. This cake sounds like it would taste weird, but it is very delicious. Try it! You will like it.

Do you drain the crushed pineapple? (01/15/2007)

Pineapple Coconut Cake

I'm betting since no liquids are listed that the juice is not drained. (01/16/2007)
