Recipe of the Month – To Die for Cake #AtoZChallenge

imagejpeg_0This month I am participating in the A to Z Challenge. My topic of choice is antagonists. As soon as I noticed that the letter D landed on the day I feature a recipe, I knew I wanted to do To Die for Cake. Now there are many re out there with this title. I have one for Pumpkin Bars that are “to die for.” But this recipe is one that my mom took to a church function and received tons of compliments.

Cake Ingredients:

1 box yellow cake mix

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained.

Cream Cheese Icing Ingredients:

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened

½ cup butter, softened

3 ¾ cups confectioners’ sugar

1 t. vanilla

1 ½ cups sweetened shredded coconut

½ cups chopped nuts (optional)


In a large bowl, combine cake ingredients; beat until smooth. Pour in greased 15 X 10 X 1 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool.

Combine icing ingredients until smooth. Spread over cake and sprinkle with nuts, if desired.

Yields about 24 servings.
