This cake uses regular boxed cake mix but then it is given an ‘island vibe’ by using Coconut Crème Jell-O Pudding mix and pineapple juice instead of oil.  So now on to the recipe.

I greased a square & circle 8″x8″ pan to make 2 cakes.  I wanted to send over the second one to my in-laws as a ‘Thank you’ for all the help they did on our new back deck.  Feel free to make this in one pan only using baking directions according to the type of boxed cake mix you use.

In the bottom of your greased pan pour the 1/2 cup of melted butter, dividing into each pan if your making 2 cakes.  Then add your brown sugar again dividing if making 2 cakes.  Place your cherries on top of the butter & brown sugar mix.

Drain your pineapple into another bowl so that you can make sure you reserve the liquid to use for the cake mix.  Now add the pineapple to the pans.  Then your shredded coconut.

Now it’s time for the cake mix.  Which is simple as adding your cake mix, Jell-O pudding, eggs, milk and reserved pineapple juice.  Mix with electric mixer until well combined, 3-5 minutes or so.  Pour batter over the top of your delicious pineapple & coconut.

Bake for 34 minutes at 350 degree or according to the directions on your cake mix for the type of dish you are using. Once cake has cooled slightly place a plate inverted on top of pan. Flip plate over. When pan is removed you should now have the pineapple & coconut mixture facing up. And here you are…..
