This recipe came to me in 1980 from a friend I worked with. She told me she had been making this almost since 7-Up and cake mixes were both just babies. It is really good and moist too. My church family loves it.

Ingredients

CAKE

1 box
duncan hines lemon cake mix
1 box
small lemon or pineapple instant pudding mix
2/3 c
vegetable oil
4 large
eggs
10 oz
7-up soda

FROSTING

1 stick
butter, melted
1 1/2 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
flour, any kind
2 large
eggs
20 oz. can(s)
crushed pineapple, undrained
1 1/2 c
cocoanut

Directions Step-By-Step

1
CAKE;
Stir cake mix and pudding together.
2
combine oil and eggs, beat lightly and add to cake mix along with the 7-up. Only mix to combine well. If you beat it a lot the layers will tear easily when baked.
3
Bake at 350* in 3 9 inch layer pans. My oven cooks them in 28 minutes. Let rest in pans on wire rack for 10 min. then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.
4
FROSTING;
Combine sugar and flour, stir well.
In a 3 qt boiler put your butter, pineapple and eggs. Combine well before you add the sugar mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook till thickened. Stir in cocoanut last.
5
Spread between layers and on top and sides. Sometimes I just put it between the layers and leave the sides naked. Or frost sides with cool whip if you're going to serve it the same day.
