Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 20 ounce cans crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup (1 stick) salted butter, sliced into quarters and then each quarter sliced into thirds
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Maraschino cherries, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9" x 13" baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Spread the pineapple and the juices from the can evenly over the bottom of the pan.

  3. Sprinkle all of the cake mix evenly over the pineapple.

  4. Sprinkle the coconut evenly over the cake mix.

  5. Place the pats of butter evenly over the coconut layer.

  6. Bake for 45 minutes (check one or twice in the baking and if the coconut is getting too dark, cover with foil).

  7. Allow to cool slightly before serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top of each piece.

Recipe Notes

If you want to serve with homemade whipped cream, whip up 1 cup heavy cream, ¼ cup confectioner’s sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or better yet, a splash of rum!) until it forms stiff peaks.
