Pineapple Pudding Cake

If you’re crushing for a sweet treat, this cake is for you. It is a very semi-homemade type dessert (ie uses lots of packaged things) but is so good…

1 yellow cake mix, made according to directions and baked in a deep 9 x 13 pan
2 small packages instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups whole milk
1 can crushed pineapple
3/4 cup sugar
Sweetened, whipped cream or Cool Whip

Bake cake, and remove from oven.

While it’s baking, heat pineapple and sugar in a saucepan until sugar dissolves and mixture becomes syrupy. Pour over hot cake.

Make pudding with mixes and milk. Pour over pineapple, and smooth. Refrigerate for two hours. Before serving, top with whipped cream or Cool Whip. Ridiculously good.

You’ll want to be sure to use a deep pan so there’s plenty of room for the layers of pineapple, pudding and whipped cream on top.
