Luau Cake

I am looking for a recent post for a luau cake. It was a can of pineapple crushed mixed with an angel food cake mix with cool whip for icing and then roasted coconut I believe.

Thank you in advance,
Michele from SW MO

I call this "Jewel's Cake" because my lovely neighbor, named Jewel, gave it to me.

One box of angel food cake mix (Betty Crocker works best)
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple in juice (NOT heavy syrup) DO NOT DRAIN.

Follow directions on cake mix box for mixing and baking the cake, EXCEPT substitute the 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple for the water. Bake in angel food cake pan according to directions. Immediately invert pan over the neck of a soda water bottle. When cool, remove from pan.

Rather than icing the cake, serve the icing or topping separately. That way you don't have to refrigerate any left over cake.

Topping: Either Cool Whip by itself, or try this:

1 16 oz. can of Del Monte's crushed pineapple in juice.
1 12 oz. container of Cool Whip (thawed)
1 3 oz. box of instant pudding (coconut, French vanilla, or your choice)


Mix all together and serve separately with cake.

1 box Betty Crocker angel food cake mix (no substitutes)
1 can (15 1/4 oz) crushed pineapple, sweet or unsweetened

Put cake mix into mixer bowl and add undrained pineapple. Beat until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Put in a tube pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and dusted with flour. Bake at 350° until golden brown, about 30 minutes. When cool frost with Cool Whip and coconut, as desired.

When making the Angel food cake mix and crushed pineapple. Make sure the cake mix is the ONE STEP cake mix. It works equally well with any brand cake mix.

Combine dry cake mix with pineapple and juice.
Stir in cocnut and ginger.
Put in a 9 by 11 or 9 by 13 ungreased cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
