Instructions

  • Mix and bake cake mix according to box instructions.
  • While baking drain the juice from the pineapple and reserve the crushed pineapple in another bowl.
  • Mix pineapple juice, sweetened condensed milk and cream of coconut together.
  • Let cake cool about 10 minutes and then poke holes in cake with the back of wooden spoon or a straw. Pour condensed milk mixture over cake and let cool completely. (I like to refrigerate while cooling about 2 hours)

  • Top with maraschino cherries for garnish if desired.
