Doris Danilow’s Pineapple Dream Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
½ C oil
3 eggs
2 20 ounce cans crushed pineapple – undrained
¼ C water
1 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip
2 small packages of instant vanilla pudding mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 cake pan. Set aside.

Mix cake mix, oil, eggs, water and one can of the crushed pineapple in a large bowl until all the ingredients are blended. Pour batter into the cake pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan completely.

When the cake is cool, make the frosting. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat Cool Whip, pudding mix and the other can of crushed pineapple. Beat for about 3 minutes, making sure the pudding mixture has been fully dissolved.

Spoon the topping on the cake in a thick layer. Chill in the refrigerator before serving or serve immediately.
