Pineapple Cream Cake

This cake would be perfect after a heavy turkey dinner.
It's quick to make, is light and delicious and keeps well in the fridge for a day or two .
I aplogize for the blurry picture. I was in a hurry and and it shows!
Bake an angel food cake either from scratch or a mix.
In a large bowl, combine 1 pkg. Vanilla Instant Pudding
1 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple.
In another bowl, whip 2 cups of heavy cream.

Gently fold whipped cream into pineapple mixture until well blended.
Slice cake into 2 or 3 layers.
Spread a generous amount of pineapple cream between the cake layers
and then ice cake with the remainder.
Refrigerate until serving.


  1. Looks delicious! Looking forward to all the great dinners!

  2. This cake looks great...blurry or not! Grin...actually, your picture looks fine and this recipe is sure to be a winner for those who don't have all the time after a HUGE festive dinner this season. Thanks for the post. I have a suspicion that there are more than several people who read this who love that pineapple addition to desserts!

  3. My mouth is watering! This sounds good and looks amazing! A+ for presentation!

  4. Mmmm, that does sound light and delish.....too bad my oldest has allergies to pineapple. i'll have to save that one when she is out of town...

  5. This does look yummy...but I again I have questions. Do you drain the pineapple before mixing it with the pudding and do you mix the pudding and pineapple together to make a pudding like consistency...?? Or does the pudding and pineapple remain like it looks in the bowl and then add to the whip cream, does this not make the icing a more "runny" texture..??


  6. No, you do not drain the pineapple. I was a little concerned too that it might be too runny. But the pudding mix thickens it up enough to ice the cake without any difficulty. Be sure to whip the cream well(not to the Butter stage but just before :))

  7. YUM! I've never made it with the whipped cream mixed into the pineapple pudding mixture. I've always mixed in cool whip. I'm certain the whipped cream is much better. I usually add fresh berries and use lemon pudding.
