DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the yellow cake mix as directed for a 9 X 13 pan.
  • (I sometimes use the liquid reserved from the crushed pineapple as part of the liquid in the cake).
  • Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan.
  • Spread the crushed pineapple evenly over the cake (use good judgement, you don’t want to oversoak the cake).
  • Prepare the pudding mix as directed with the 2 cups of milk, or prepare your own recipe for vanilla pudding.
  • If using a cooked pudding, prepare it ahead and allow it to cool completely before adding to the cake.
  • Spread the pudding evenly over the cake and pineapple.
  • If using, slice the banana and arrange slices evenly over the pudding.
  • Spread the Cool Whip or whipped cream evenly over the top of the cake to frost.
  • Sprinkle with toasted coconut to taste.
  • Keep in the refrigerator.
  • The longer it sets, the better it tastes.
