The trick to making this not get soggy is to drain the juice from the pineapple and put the fluffy topping directly on the top of the cake, then the pineapple and coconut scattered across the whole cake. My family has been making it that way for years and it's the most requested cake we make. Also we double the topping and make it in a big jelly roll pan and use a butter yellow cake mix. It's delicious and making it this way, it keeps well in the in the fridge for days.


This is a great dessert. It's supposed to be a bit moist so DON'T drain the pineapple as someone suggested. The whipped topping should be refrigerated, not frozen -- you just have to make sure that your cake has cooled before frosting with the topping/pudding mixture. Follow the recipe and you will not be disappointed! I bake a lot of fancy cakes from complicated recipes, but my kids continue to request this one really often. It's that good!


What a GREAT recipie! It was so simple to make and tasted fantastic. I made it for a luau themed party, and everyone could not say enough about it. You could easily get away with 1 package of pudding and 1/2 the cool whip bc it made a ton of topping. I wasn't too disappointed, as I just ate the rest! The only thing I did differently was bake some shredded coconut and add it on top for appearance! Thanks for the instant classic!
