Make a delicious coconut pineapple cake.

A very sweet, moist, and fruity carrot cake, that is based on this recipe. Carrot cake can be dry so I am glad that the pineapple helped solve that.


I am doubling the baking time because it literally took twice as long as what the link said.

  • 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)

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