Cake Magnifica

This yummy recipe, which we made on the youth retreat with minimal equipment, comes from Emily Berberick of Ross.

1/2 box yellow cake mix
1 small package instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup warm milk
1 large can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
1 large container Cool Whip (we used the creamy version)
Coconut to taste

In 13-by-9-inch pan, bake cake using according to the package directions, using half of the ingredients. (We used Jiffy brand cake mix, which is half the size of regular mixes.) Cool cake.

To make pudding, combine instant vanilla pudding and 1 1/2 cups cold milk. Blend softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup warm milk. (We had no mixer, so the girls did it by hand, pressing the cream cheese against the bowl to eliminate lumps.) Combine pudding and cream mixture. Spread on cold cake.

Drain crushed pineapple. Sprinkle over pudding-cream cheese topping. Top with Cool Whip and sprinkle with coconut. (Next time we may use only two-thirds of the Cool Whip.)

Refrigerate any leftovers.
