This is another in the same line as the chocolate cookie sheet cake. Someone could call Mom needing to come by to visit, she could build this cake and a pot of coffee before they got here. Its just that simple and fast. After you make it once you won't need the recipe again, its just some of this and some of that. Mom always had the ingredients for this in the pantry. Chuckles, I have to tell you, tonight when making this cake was the very first time to my knowledge that I ever used a boxed cake mix. Here's the recipe, I just did a 2 layer tonight. I am trying to readjust these things to a smaller quanity because since I can't see to be able to throw out the left over cake...... well you see my problem. I am wanting to start making 7 or 8" cakes. Still alot but I don't feel quite so bad..>>LOL Ingredients:1 (18-ounce) packageDucan Hines pineapple cake mix1 packageJello instant vanilla pudding (or Pineapple)3/4 cupcrisco oil4eggs2egg yolk1 (10-ounce) bottle7-up1 1/2 cupgranluated sugar3 tablespoonscornstarch1 stickbutter3 (8-ounce) cansundrained crushed pineapple3 9 inchescake pans Directions: Add cake mix, pudding mix, oil, 4 whole eggs, and 7-Up, mix med. for 2 mins. Pour into buttered cake pans, bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 mins. You know how to check it, just do it. Combine sugar, pinch of salt, cornstarch, 2 yolks, butter, and pineapple in sauce pan. Heat slowly, untill juices are almost clear and it thickens. Spread between layers and on top of the cake. This is the problem around here, we have mice! At least they use a knife to cut slices....... The above is from my own cookbook. Its not taken from another, I am sure plenty of Mom's have this or a close recipe, but this one is my Mom's and now mine. You get a sweet tooth, this is not that thick chocolate sweetness, Its much lighter and with the fruit it has to be considered a healthy alternative. Try it, You'll like it.
