This is a recipe that a friend of mine gave me years ago. She brought this cake to one of our monthly luncheons and it quickly dissappeared. She was sweet enough to share her recipe with me. The pictures shown were taken by fellow JAP member Cindy Strawser...

Ingredients

CAKE:

1 box
lemon cake mix
3/4 c
canola oil
10 oz
mountain dew
1 box
instant lemon pudding mix
4 large
eggs

ICING:

1 c
sugar
1 large
can crushed pineapple with juice
3 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/2 stick
butter
1 c
shredded coconut

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat the oven to 350 F
2
In a medium bowl, add cake mix, oil, pudding mix and eggs. Mix to combine.
3
Add the Mountain Dew; beat with electric mixer on medium speed for 2 or 3 minutes.
4
Pour batter into prepared bundt cake pan (sprayed with cooking spray with flour.) My handwritten recipe suggested a bundt pan but I really prefer to use a 9 x 13 cake pan.
5
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
6
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, pineapple and cornstarch. Stir and cook until thick.
7
Remove from heat and add butter and coconut. Stir to combine well. Slowly pour hot icing over cake.
