    Source of Recipe

    Shirley Peeters, my Grandmother

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 box yellow cake mix
    • 1 20oz can crushed pineapple
    • 1 3.5 oz pkg. instant vanilla pudding
    • 3 cups milk ( to use in pudding )
    • 1 container whipped cream
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1 cup toasted coconut
    • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    • 2 bananas (optional)


    1. Bake cake in a 9X13 pan according to the directions on the box

    2. While cake is baking, combine pineapple (with juice in can) and the 1 cup sugar. Cook over medium heat until syrupy. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes uniformly throughout the entire surface of the cake.Pour Pineapple mixture over the surface of the cake and spread out evenly. Let the cake cool completely.

    3. Make the vanilla pudding with the 3 cups of milk. Chill, and then spread over the entire surface of the cake like you would frosting.Make sure the cake is completely cool before you do this.

    4. Add your container of whipped cream, and spread evenly over the pudding.

    5. Chill for 24 hours before serving, adding your toasted coconut and pecans just before serving. Serves a crowd.

    6. Variation: You can add sliced bananas in between the pudding and whipped topping layers. Just be sure to completely cover them with the whipped topping so they don't brown.

    7. You can also substitute real whipped cream for the Cool Whip variety as follows:

    8. Whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream until slightly thickened. Add 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar & 1tsp. vanilla extract, and beat until soft peaks form.Spread over pudding or banana layer.
