Hawaiian Delight Cake Recipe
1 package white cake mix (bake as directed) I baked mine in 2-9 inch round cake pans. But this recipe also works beautifully in a 9×13 pan. I mixed my white cake mix only using egg whites. The cake came out similar to an angel food cake. My family LOVED it.
1 large package instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1-8 oz cream cheese, softened
1-15 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1 Pint Whip cream-whipped
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup toasted almonds-slivers or chopped
*Bake cake as directed and completely cool on cooling rack.
*Mix pudding as directed on package. Let set for 15 minutes. Add cream cheese and mix well.
*Spread half of the pudding/cream cheese mixture on cake
*Crumble 1/2 can drained, crushed pineapple over cream cheese mixture
*Top with 1/2 of the whipped cream-sweetened with powdered sugar and vanilla to your liking
*Sprinkle with toasted almonds and coconut
*Add second round cake layer on top
*Refrigerate until served
As you can tell, the cream cheese and pudding mixture is mixed until a smooth texture.
For a tip…Instead of using instant pudding, I used 6 lunch sized pudding cups. That will save a little time from making your pudding and then you won’t need the milk, either.
Once you are done with all the layers- “Frost” the sides of the cake with the pudding/cream cheese mixture.
