If you like pineapple, try this!!!

If you like pineapple you might want to try this cake recipe. I have been wanting to share this for awhile just kept forgetting about it. I've made this cake several times for get togethers and they just about lick the pan clean, they manage to get every last bit of icing. Hope you try it sometime! I just might make one this weekend. The kitchen smells so good while this is baking in the oven. Just be sure the cake is thoroughly COOLED or the icing will melt. Be sure you don't drain the pineapple. I shared the recipe with Sharon at the Queen's blog for her luau themed birthday party this past weekend. Haven't heard if she made the cake or not. So easy! Enjoy!! Wishing everyone a fun filled weekend!!

• 1 box yellow cake mix
• 1⁄2 cup oil
• 3 eggs
• 2 20-ounce cans crushed pineapple — undrained
• 1⁄4 cup water
• 1 8-ounce tub of Cool Whip
• 2 small packages of instant vanilla pudding mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly grease a 9x13 cake pan. Set aside.
Mix cake mix, oil, eggs, water and one can of crushed pineapple in a large bowl until all the ingredients are blended.
Pour batter into the cake pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
Let cake cool in pan completely.
When the cake is cool, make the frosting.
With an electric mixer on low speed, beat Cool Whip, pudding mix and the other can of crushed pineapple.
Beat for about 3 minutes, making sure the pudding mixture has been fully disolved.
Spoon the topping on the cake in a thick layer.
Chill in the refrigerator before serving, or serve immediately.
