Recipe by Barbara
"This cake is more of a layered torte, than a frosted cake. It is kept in the refrigerator and is very delicious. I have been making this cake for many years and recently made it for my nephew's 24th birthday. It is his favorite."

1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple with juice
1 (18.25 ounce) package
yellow cake mix
1 (8 ounce) package
1 (12 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix
I usually make this in a 9x13 pan. Jiffy cake mix is the perfect size for this recipe. I've never tried putting nuts on top. Good idea.
Why not usea Jiffy Yellow Cake mix. You do not have to discard 1/2 of mix. I too have made this cake for years and have always used Jiffy.
Great cake! So yummy. I made this cake on a cold January day, and the cake made me feel like I was on a sunny, warm, beach somewhere. I changed the cake up by using pineapple cake mix instead of yellow cake mix. I also used coconut creme pudding mix instead of vanilla pudding mix. Also, the recipes calls for only half the cake batter to be used. I really agree with this. Don't use all the cake batter, because I think it would take away from the flavor of the cake. Soooo good! I can't stop eating it. I was going to take it to work to share with everyone, but I think this one is staying with me.
I have been looking for a recipe like this for a long time...made this cake last night, and it is almost gone already! My dad snuck into the kitchen at 3 am and had a piece! Only thing I did different was use the whole cake mix and I made a double layer round cake. Turned out wonderful!!
This recipe is awesome! I've been making it for years! You can sub any flavor pudding and any fruit and its great too. For example, I've used chocolate pudding and bananas and its a whole new twist to this recipe!
Fabulous! Delicious! Easy! What more could you want in a dessert?
I would have given it 3 stars but my company loved it and had seconds. I think the problem for me is that it wasnt sweet enough. When i indulge in dessert i like to go for all the calories and sweetness. They all raved about how light it was though and kept saying it was very delicious.
Very tasty and simple to make.
