Right Side Up Pineapple Cake

Recipe by Anita Harris

Recipe came from the inside of the lid of a Kroger brand whipped topping container and all I can say is OMG, YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY!!!!!! Not sure of prep and cooking times.

This is a good cake. The pudding section of it was very confusing. I couldn't locate a 5 1/4 oz. pudding box. The large box was three something oz. I ended up using two small boxes instead, with the 2 cups of milk. But each of those boxes called for 2 cups of milk each. In spite of the pudding confusion, it was still a very good cake. I took it to work and left with an empty pan.
