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.

How to Make Cool and Light Pineapple Coconut Cake

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.
