This recipe was given to me by my bachelor brother, after he made it, so I figured I had to post this (my brother never cooked). It's very simple; uses a cake mix and whipped topping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease and flour a 13" x 9" glass baking pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil and pineapple in a mixing bowl; blend on low speed, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in nuts, if using them.
  3. Pour batter into the prepared 13 x 9 baking dish.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake tests done with a toothpick.
  5. Cool.
  6. For topping, blend all topping ingredients, mixing well; spread evenly over cooled cake.
  7. Refrigerate cake after cake is topped.

It's a warm day today and a pineapple lemon cake sounded so refreshing. I'm a lemon lover, so added some juice to the cake batter and a little more than what was called for in the topping, but either way is wonderful. I've never used condensed milk added to a topping, and it really made the cake different and delicious -- one that I will make again and again.

Yummy cake. I'm thinking next time I'll add some coconut and make it a pina colada cake.
