1 box french vanilla (white or yellow should work too) cake mix
1 small can of coconut won't use all of it
1 small can crushed pineapple, drain most of juice but do not "squeeze" dry
1 egg
coconut (I didn't actually measure, just sort of threw it in)

Follow instructions on back of cake mix (NOTE we live at high altitude but I still never adjust the mix).

But in place of oil and all but one of the eggs add coconut milk (a little more than required oil measurement).

Add pineapple and coconut (like I said, I just threw some in)

I put mine in a bundt pan so followed temperature and time for took a few minutes longer, because the pineapple made the batter a little moister!

Pairs Well With


So, it was my intention to make a dump cake one night....but I had some coconut milk in the cupboard. I started throwing all my "tropical" ingredients into the cake mix and surprisingly it turned out super yummy!

It was pretty good. Next time my plan is to add some chopped pecans. I think that would just great...try it and let me know what you think! :)


Can't wait to try this!

This sounds very tasty. I love the combination of ingredients, I think this would be better than the original dump cake recipe. Thanks for posting your great ideas.
