I found this cake in the coupon flier this week and it looked so springy I just had to give it a try. It's a Dole cake and came with a coupon for Dole Pineapple. The picture from the recipe had raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries but I opted for just strawberries since fresh berries are not really in season yet. I did not feel like I was missing anything at all!
Here's what you need:
1 20 oz can Crushed Pineapple, undrained (try to use the pineapple in 100% pineapple juice)
1 3.4 oz package Jell-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
1 10 oz round angel food cake, cut into 3 layers
Mix pineapple and dry pudding mix in medium bowl. Gently stir in whipped topping.
Place bottom layer of the angel food cake on a plate. Using a spatula, spread 1/3 of the pineapple mix on top of the layer. Place the middle layer on top of the bottom layer, spread 1/3 of the pineapple mix on that layer. Place the top layer on top of the middle layer and spread remaining 1/3 of the pineapple mix.
Place berries on top in a visually pleasing manor.
My cake had the pineapple mix dripping out all over so to make it look better I smoothed the mix around the sides of the cake.
Place the cake in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to chill.
This cake will serve 10 to 12 but you will want to eat it half of it yourself!
We declared this cake to be Yum-tacular!!
