make cake mix according to direcections.add about a little more than 1/2 a small can of drained pineapple to batter. batter should never be thin. if it is add a little cake flour 1 teasp at a time. the thinner the batter everything in batter goes to bottom of cake while its cooking. always keep cake flour on hand. blend well. bake til tooth pick comes out clean. let cool.
when cake is cool, frost with vanilla frosting. then by the hand fulls scatter coconut on top of cake and pat down a little and scatter a little more and pat down til it looks nice.
thats it lol i've called it a no brainer cake. even if u've never baked a cake this is the one to try out first. u can't go wrong lol
