Yum Yum Cake
Nunny was famous for this cake. There are lot of goodies in this cake and her grandchildren talked about this cake well into adulthood. It was well worth the time it took to make it to see the gleam in those little one's eyes.
Because there is so many ingredients in this cake if there is something you don't like or have an allergy to, just leave it out. I'm sure everyone can think of something to add in the place of one of these ingredients. But if it's chocolate you crave look at the Mud Slide Recipe.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 - 5-1/2 oz. vanilla instant pudding
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1-1/2 cups milk
1 13-1/2 oz. cool whip
1 large No. 2 can crushed pineapple
How To Mix and Bake
Make cake mix as directed.
Bake in 9 x 12 inch cake pan for 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside and cool.
Beat together pudding, cream cheese, and milk until spreading consistency.
Spread over cooled cake.
Drain pineapple and spread over pudding.
Spread cool whip over pineapple.
Sprinkle with coconut and chopped nuts as desired.
To give this cake additional color, Nunny would sometimes sprinkle chopped marachino cherries over the top.
This cake must be refrigerated if your little ones don't just gobble it all up.
As Nunny said, "Try it -- You'll like it."
