Pineapple Coconut Icebox Cake


I made this dessert last week while I had house guests visiting.  It is the perfect dessert for these hot summer days.  It is cool and luscious and not too sweet. I hope you all give it a try. ~ Diane

Pineapple Coconut Icebox Cake
 
Ingredients for Cake:
1 box white or yellow cake mix
1 large can (20oz.) of crushed pineapple including the juice
2 whole eggs

Cake directions:
In a large bowl whisk the eggs until frothy, add the cake mix and the crushed pineapple
including the juice.  Mix well to combine. Pour into a greased 9x13 Pyrex baking dish.
Bake according to cake mix directions on the box. Let cool to room temperature.

Ingredients for the Topping:
16 oz container of whipped topping
1/2 cup milk
3.5 oz package of instant vanilla pudding
2 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Topping directions:
In a large bowl mix the pudding and the milk together.  Fold the whipped topping

Sprinkle the coconut over the top. 

Cake needs to be kept in the refrigerator for best results.
