Yellow cake mix and pineapples make the sweetest pick-me-up

Sometimes, during the short, chilly days of fall and winter, you just want something to brighten things up. Enter this fluffy, sweet pineapple cake that is like sunshine on a plate. It starts with a boxed cake mix, a couple of cans of crushed pineapple, some frozen whipped topping and pudding mix. Tossing it together couldn’t be easier.
With its double dose of pineapple, this simple cake is loaded with tropical flavor. If you want to add even more, sprinkle shredded coconut over the top. The cake and topping are sweet as is, so you can use toasted unsweetened coconut — or go ahead and use the sweet stuff. We won’t tell!
