Pineapple Delight Cake

20120510-115314.jpg

I like to cook almost anything, but I really love to bake! Cooking requires knowledge and practice, but real, serious baking requires more chemistry, more precision, and for extremely beautiful results a certain creativity and decorating ability.

There’s nothing I like to do more than roll up my sleeves, put on an apron, and start sifting the flour and measuring the sugar and butter. I bake a lot, but I’m always willing to try a new recipe and decorate another cake.

I love visiting the newest bakery in town and search for bakeries while on vacation, looking for a fresh idea.

It’s important to me to make baked goods–cakes, cookies, breads and pies-that are delicious to eat and beautiful to look at. I strive to make the recipes in my cookbooks simple, clear, and easy to follow.

I think you will find this special Pineapple Delight Cake from my Alaskan Rock’n Galley cookbook a wonderful addition to your repertoire. I hope that you bake it right away. Your family will adore you and your friends will cheer for more.

Pineapple Delight Cake

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
4 egg whites
1 egg
1 (8-ounce) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup cold milk
1 (3-ounce) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (14-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 (8-ounce) frozen whip topping, thawed
1/2 cup flaked coconut, toasted
