I made this this weekend and my husband said, "it's so cool and light." So, that's what I'll call it. Easy and so good.

Ingredients

1 pkg
pineapple cake mix
1 can(s)
(20 oz) pineapple chunks in heavy syrup
2 c
coconut, divided
ingredients for cake as on box
1 pkg
whipped topping, thawed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain pineapple chunks, reserving 1/2 cup syrup. Set pineapple chunks aside.

Mix cake per directions on box, but use 1/2 cup pineapple syrup and add enough water to meet water measure for cake. (I used cake mix that called for 1 cup water, so I used 1/2 cup syrup and 1/2 cup water.)
2
Stir in pineapple chunks and 1 cup coconut. Bake in greased and floured 13'x9' cake pan. Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes, or until toothpick come out clean.
3
Cover cake and refrigerate to make a cool dessert. For serving, top with whipped topping and reserved coconut.
