Pineapple Lover's Delight
Ingredients:
1 Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
1-8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 Lg. pkg. instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 large can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 large container cool whip
1 package coconut flakes

13' x 9' Pan -
Bake 1 Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix, per directions
Turn out on oblong plate
In a bowl mix a little of the milk with the cream cheese. Add remaining milk and box of dry instant pudding. Mix Well-let it set up for about 5 minutes. Spread top of cooled cake with pudding mixture, spread drained pineapple on top of pudding mixture. Cover top and sides with cool whip, cover top and pat sides with coconut flakes.

I'm baking one this week, but substituting the pineapple with fresh, sliced, strawberries, and instead of topping with coconut, I'm topping with fresh, thinly sliced strawberries.

This sounds really good - have you tried this with toasted coconut?

Fruit cocktail cake made like this, except mom used a yellow cake mix. I LOVED the frosting/glaze.

Nothing like gooey butter cake either.

Any boxed flavor, mixed with diet sprite or any other soda. I usually do a single serving in the microwave but have done a whole one in the oven.



Or boxed chocolate mixed with chobani greek yogurt. I nuke that in a mug!


My BF likes it when I make him peach cobbler with box white cake, peaches and butter. Takes 5 minutes to prep and not too long to cook. I usually just make a quarter pan size serving. Same size as Chinese take out trays.

I've always used fresh and cut a bunch in half and leave some whole..
Powdered sugar, if desired..
---------------------------------------------
Orange Sauce, if desired

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup butter or margarine

Steps
Heat oven to 325F. Grease and flour 12-cup fluted tube cake pan, or spray with baking spray with flour.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, pudding mix, water, softened butter, orange peel and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Fold in cranberries. Spread in pan.

Bake 57 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
