1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 can (8 oz) pineapple chunks

1 box (4-serving size) coconut cream instant pudding & pie filling mix
2 cups milk
(see my tips below)

Whipped topping
optional: shredded coconut

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray.

2:  Drain pineapple juice into a bowl and refrigerat the pineapple chunks for later.  Transfer juice to a 2 cup measureing cup and add water to equal 1+1/4 cups liquid.

3:  In large bowl, beat cake mix, pineapple liquid, oil and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.

4:  With handle of wooden spoon (1/4- to 1/2-inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking.

5:  In medium bowl, beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 45 to 60 seconds or until slightly thickened but still pourable. Carefully pour over cake, spreading evenly over surface. Work back and forth to fill holes, tapping pan lightly on counter several times. Refrigerate 2 hours.

6:  Spread whipped topping over top of cake. Cut pineapple chunks into smaller pieces and sprinkle them over the top. Also sprinkle on the shredded coconut if desires. Cover and refrigerate any remaining cake.

Darlene’s Tips:  This would be delish served with coconut sherbet or pineapple sherbet!  You could also add a bit of rum extract to the cake mix. Flavored whipped topping is awesome too! Add a few drops of any extra to your whipped topping and also add a heaping teaspoonful of granulated sugar and mix. Totally different texture and flavor. Experiment!
