There were so many conflicting pieces of advice for this recipe! Here's what I did: I made the cake a few days before the dinner party and froze it. I let it defrost overnight. I warmed it for a short bit in the microwave and poked holes on top. I drained the pineapple and put it right on top of the cake. I mixed up the pudding mix, all the milk, and the thawed whipping topping. I tend to dump everything into a bowl and it worked out fine. I put toasted coconut on top of the cake.
It was really delicious for our Hawaiian dinner menu. It was also good several days later. I guess that draining the pineapple keeps it from getting soggy. If you want a stronger pineapple flavor, maybe used the drained pineapple juice as part of the liquid in baking the cake.
