Pineapple Coconut Supper Cake aka Do Nothing Cake aka Texas Tornado Cake aka Earthquake Cake

Found this recipe. Frankly, it was lacking in useful details for me. So I’m putting my own twist on this recipe. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Ingredients:

Cake:

2 cups sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
16 ounces crushed pineapple, undrained

Icing:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 cup Baker’s coconut, lightly toasted (stovetop, medium heat, 1 minute)
1 cup nuts (pecans or walnuts), lightly toasted (stovetop, medium heat, 3 minutes)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions:
Cake:
Place cake ingredients in a bowl & mix until blended with spoon.
Pour into 13×9 inch cake pan.
Bake at 350°F 35-40 minutes.
(I used a glass pyrex pan, it took me 40 minutes).

Icing:
Mix butter, sugar and evaporated milk together and cook over medium heat until a little thickened. (This usually takes about 5 minutes at a boil).(It took me way longer than that, around 10 minutes)
Remove from heat and add nuts and coconut.
Pour over hot cake.

Enjoy!

Note to self: This cake tastes AMAZING, and looks AMAZING. The ingredients are pretty cheap, so it makes for great holiday gift giving. It’s easy and fast and has very simple ingredients, so if company comes on short notice, this cake is the way to go. All in all, a winner!
