Really fast and simple..makes a light, cool dessert that's perfect for summer :)
I was extremely unhappy with the lumpiness that the pineapple in the cool whip/pudding mixture made. It just looks awful and makes it hard to spread "frosting".
I loved this cake, even though I had to change the recipe a bit because I live overseas and didn't have all the ingredients available. The best part, I thought, was the frosting. I didn't have a whipped topping, so I substituted 1 cup heavy cream whipped together with the pudding and a couple pieces of crushed up pineapple with about 2 T. juice. It was delicious -- I made it three times in a row for three different events and everyone loved it. The best part is, it's easy, easy, easy! Some other combinations of cake mix and stir-ins that I tried were strawberry cake mix with pineapple and strawberry cake mix with mashed bananas. Both combinations were delicious. I thought the strawberry banana cake tasted best with vanilla pudding in the frosting. The strawberry pineapple cake tasted great with white chocolate pudding in the frosting.
Very good, very easy recipe. Smells great as it's baking. Will be making again, maybe trying blueberry filling next time.
ATTN COOKS: DON'T FORGET THE EGGS IN STEP #2! :)
Don't be a dork like me, and have to mix the 2 eggs in after you've poured the mix in the pan and swirled in the strawberry topping! I forgot until almost the last minute! Whoops!
But I made this for a work party, and it was gobbled up in the blink of an eye. Very moist and tasty. I used white cake mix instead of the pineapple flavored mix. All was well in the end, even though my eggs were not as mixed in as they could have been ;)
Wow! So simple to make and so absolutely delicious! This cake also freezes well. I highly recommend this one.
This cake probebly would have been better if made with a white cake mix instead off pinapple cake....too strong of a pinapple taste for me.
This cake was very easy to make and it was light and yummy.
