THIS CAKE WAS SOOOO GOOD. We could not get enough of it. Like some others, I used the reserved pineapple juice from the pineapple in the cake batter instead of water. I also poked holes in the cooled cake before I poured on the pineapple. I toasted the coconut which I think made a big difference and I left out the nuts and the cherries. The nuts just cause so many people don't like nuts and it was for a party and the cherries cause I think it just didn't need it. The toasted coconut on top was perfect. It was GREAT the next day form the refrigerator too. Such an awesome cake and so easy to make.

There was nothing special about this cake. It was good, but nothing to rave about!

This cake is very good. I added pineapple juice in the cake batter instead of water. Came out great without the coconut,cherries and nuts.

This recipe is similar to the "better than sex" cake recipe, but with some improvements. Making it in the larger pan really helps since the cake is a little shallower, so the pineapple is able to make it moister. It is even better the next day after it is made. I made it using the lite cream cheese and lite cool whip, also used honey roasted macadamia nuts and coconut on top, omitting the cherries since they "bleed" onto the topping and I made it the night before the Hawaiian Party we had. Everyone loved it.

Wow, this is good! I use a pineapple cake mix rather than vanilla to give it even more flavor. When making the topping, be sure to mix the ingredients well or you will bite into pockets of cream cheese bits. Everyone I served this to asked for the recipe.

This was easy and wonderful. The only thing I did different was beat the cream cheese till smooth and add pudding mix and milk in with cream cheese and beat till pudding set a little and then folded in cool whip.

Delicious!! Make for a family get-together and I had to promise to email everyone the recipe. I didn't use the nuts or cherries and I highly recommend making this a day ahead... it's MUCH better the 2nd and 3rd day! :o)

This is amazing! I got this recipe in college from my room mate Marcia,(not sure if it is the same Marcia or just a coincidence) and I make it without the cream cheese. I love this cake!
