Hawaiian Cake

by Cynthia Colson
(Miramar Beach, FL)



The frosting/filling is what really makes this cake yummy!

1 large Cool Whip
1 cup coconut
2 pkgs. of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 large can crushed pineapple, well drained
(Use the juice for the cake mix!)

Mix all together and let cool for several hours.

Bake one Duncan Heinz yellow cake (to which a small can of drained mandarin oranges has been added)

Bake according to the directions in two 8 inch pans.

Frost layers of cake with the cooled filling mixture and enjoy!

BUT you do need to give the filling time to thicken.

Cut you do need to give it enough time to thicken up and hold it's shape.

Why do you have to let the first mixture cool when it was made with instant pudding mix??? It was never cooked.

Another addition to this cake...

You could also add slivered almonds to the frosting for even more flavor.

This is a good cake for spring and summer!

This cake is a favorite at our house. If you love pina coladas, this is the cake for you! Try it and you'll be hooked! You can also break up the cake, then put a layer into a trifle bowl, and then spread the filling between the 'layers' of cake. (You can also add chopped marachino cherries to the filling mixture also, for more added color.)
