Ingredients

YELLOW CAKE

4 1/2 c
cake flour
2 Tbsp
baking powder
1 Tbsp
salt
2 c
sugar
1 stick
butter, melted
8 large
eggs
3 c
milk
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1 large
box instant vanilla pudding
1 tsp
yellow food coloring

PINEAPPLE TOPPING

4 large
eggs
2 stick
butter
4 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
3 1/2 can(s)
crushed pineapple (drained)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift all dry ingredients together.
Add butter little at a time until crumbly.
Add eggs,milk,vanilla and yellow food coloring.
Mix together until smooth.
2
Preheat oven to 350
I use 8 in cake pans lined with wax paper for easy removal of cooked cake.
Use enough cake mix to spread on bottom of pan (thin).Repeat this step for 9 layers.
Watch close, they are thin and easy to over cook.
When taking the cake out of cake pan, place waxpaper side down on counter.
Cool completely.
3
As you cook the cake layers,start on the topping.
In a large heavy pot mix butter,sugar,eggs together.
Cook on low until butter is melted and sugar is disolved. Be careful not to scramble the eggs. That will happen if heat is to high. As it starts to cook raise heat little at a time until it becomes thick. Add flour and keep stiring constantly. Pore the drained pineapples into the mixture and stir. It becomes thick and syrup like as it cools.
4
Now you can start putting you cake together.
Place bottom layer on plate.
Spoon about 1/4 cup of your pinapple icing/syrup on to the cake layer. You may need a little more. you can judge.
With a fork or pointed object, poke small holes in cake so the juice can get into the cake.
Repeat until all layers have been used.
5
If you want to cheat a little, make it with 2 boxes of cake mix.. :-)
