Is It Really Better than Sex Cake?

1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 (3.4-ounce) box French vanilla pudding, plus ingredients to prepare
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup flaked, sweetened toasted coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare yellow cake mix as directed using a greased 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. While cake is baking, combine the pineapple and 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Remove cake from oven and using a fork, pierce holes into cake. Pour pineapple mixture over hot cake and set aside.

Prepare pudding according to package directions. Spread pudding over cake and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Whip heavy cream and remaining sugar until stiff. Cover top of cake with whipped cream and sprinkle toasted coconut on top.

I made and served this for a family holiday dinner, so I renamed it "Pineapple Cake." It was pretty good and so easy considering how much from scratch baking I've been doing. I love me some box cake mix.

This was tasty too. I thought all that sugar mixed in with the pineapple would be too much, but it wasn't at all.

BAJ brought this into work, and the ladies raved about it. I'm not sure, though, if they rave about every sweet treat, if he tells me they loved it whether they did or not, or if they honestly loved it! LOL
