How to Make Pineapple Poke Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour into a 13x9-in. baking pan.

    Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine pineapple and brown sugar. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 4-5 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated; cool slightly.
  5. Remove cake from the oven; place on a wire rack. Poke holes in warm cake with a fork. Spoon pineapple mixture evenly over cake; cool completely.
  6. For frosting:

    In a small bowl, beat milk, extract and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in the cool whip. Chill for 10 - 15 minutes. Frost cooled cake. Sprinkle with coconut if desired...
  7. Enjoy!
