Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch cake pan.


  • Stir yellow cake mix, eggs, water, and vegetable oil in a bowl until moistened; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in crushed pineapple. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.


  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cake is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean or with moist crumbs, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove cake from oven.


  • Whisk cream of coconut with milk in a bowl until smooth; pour mixture over hot cake. Allow cake to cool thoroughly.


  • Whip cream in a mixing bowl with sugar, using an electric mixer, until whipped cream holds soft peaks. Frost top of cake with whipped cream and sprinkle with toasted coconut.


     

Cook’s Note:

Make sure you use cream of coconut, not coconut milk or coconut juice. It is usually found with the alcoholic beverages, as it is used to make pina colada drinks.
