Instant vanilla pudding, Cool whip, and boxed cake mix -- too many ingredients I don't want to eat.

Hello, Pat. Thanks for offering your opinion. We have so many great recipes and we hope you try one of them. How about a berry tart or carrot cake?

EW

Boxed cake mix, canned pineapple, instant pudding, and Cool Whip? Ick. You must mean "more full of highly processed fake food than anything you've tasted." Cool Whip alone is nothing but water, hydrogenated vegetable oil, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavor, emulsifiers, and chemical preservatives. Gross. Would not make, and certainly would not eat.

Hello, Kitchenqueen. Thanks for offering your opinion. We have so many great recipes using non packaged/canned ingredients and we hope you try one of them. How about some chocolate cake or sweet potato pound cake?

Do you think it will hold if

Do you think it will hold if I bake cake in 2 10” rounds?

I have ate this BETTER THAN

I have ate this BETTER THAN ANYTHING YOU'VE TASTED CAKE before and it is sooo good. It is also called Better Then Sex Cake or it is around here where I live. It tastes just like it looks, delish and believe me I am a only make from scratch kind of Wife,Mommy and Mommaw and this cake rates high on my list...

I've made this cake several

I've made this cake several times since I first saw it. I am a 'bake from scratch' kind of girl, thanks to my Mother. But, this cake has become sort of famous since I started making it a couple of years ago. I've probably filled the request for the recipe, around 2 dozen times.

Very moist. Wonderful tropical flavor, and my favorite part; there is no heavy icing! I'm an icing remover. I've never met a traditional frosting I liked. So, this is right up my street.

Thanks for a great, easy recipe.

I haven't tried it yet, but

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a modern convenience bake instead of Grandma's scratch deserts I expected from The Old Farmers Almanac. I'm disappointed in the recipe, but I am going to bake this modern convenience and see how it stacks up. Since I just love Coconut & Pineapple I'm sure it won't take long to disappear:-)
I'm having the same feelings when I discovered my Grandma started using Vanilla Pudding box mix instead of from scratch which she had done for decades:-( She thought it was a GREAT CONVENIENCE and as I get older I surely understand taking any opportunity to lessen the time standing while baking, cooking, etc. I sure hope it tastes fabulous!

I will try this for my

I will try this for my husband's Birthday who is not much for Sweet things.
Wish me luck!
