Fran's notes for this recipe:
This cake was MY birthday cake for many years & was made by my best friend, and later sister-in-law, Becki.

Oh, the barbecues & lasagna dinners that were topped off by this delicious dessert! Talk about happy memories, even if the event meant I was getting older. =^..^=

Directions

1
Mix the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs together, as directed on the cake mix box. Bake the cake in a 13 x 9" baking dish, using the temperature & time suggested on the cake mix box. Remove from oven and cool.
2
Drain the pineapple well. (I actually squish it with a wooden spoon, just a little, so the cake won't get soggy.)
3
Spread drained pinepple over the cooled cake.
4
In a blender (or using a bowl & mixer), mix together the cream cheese, pudding mix, and milk until well-blended. Pour over the pineapple on the cake...
5
...and smooth the pudding evenly over the cake.
6
Refrigerate at least 30 minutes until the pudding is set. Then frost with Cool Whip.
7
Refrigerate again until ready to serve. (If there are any leftovers, refrigerate them, too.)

I wish this photo showed the whole slice of cake. Silly JAP editing! =^..^=
