Dessert Thursday

I know this is the reboot edition of the blog, kind of goes nicely with the reboot edition of the H50.  This can give a blogger the opportunity to take a bit of a rest, not to mention the ability to reflect on what she has done from February to now.   That said today I am taking that philosophy and throwing it out the window.  Let's get ready to party for granny's birthday and have some fun.

Grandmothers and roses are much the same. 
Each are God's masterpieces with different names. 

I have a very special event coming up this weekend my grandmother's 98th birthday.  So needed a new easy cake recipe to share, sorry no buttercream in this one, I think Steve might understand.  

Now that said we do remember that this team does like a sweet treat, who doesn't?   I think this just might satisfy everyone, yes even with it's whipped cream topping.  I hope you 

Hawaiian Coconut Dream

1 box  yellow cake mix
3 packages  instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz size)
4 cups cold milk
1 1/2 tsp coconut extract
8 oz softened cream cheese
20 oz crushed pineapple, well drained
2 cups heavy cream, whipped and sweetened
2 cups toasted flaked coconut

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 2 (13 x 9") baking pans and set aside. 
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, then pour into prepared pans and bake for 15 minutes or until the cakes test done. Cool completely. 
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pudding mixes and milk and coconut extract and beat for 2 minutes. 
  4. Add the cream cheese and beat well. Stir in pineapple. 
  5. Spread over the cooled cakes. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with toasted coconut. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight. (Yes that simple)
