Dream cake is a yellow cake topped with pudding, pineapple chunks and whipped topping. It's super dreamy!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (you will need water, vegetable oil and eggs to make it)
  • 1 regular size box vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups milk (for the pudding. Also have it room temperature)
  • 1, 8 ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained very well. You can press it down to get more juice out.
  • 1, 8 ounce container whipped topping, thawed (find this is in the frozen section)
  • 1½ cups shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened will work)
  1. Prepare cake according to package directions. Set aside to cool.
  2. Prepare the pudding by adding it to a large bowl the the room temperature milk and cream cheese. Using a mixer or handheld mixer, mix until creamy (It's okay if the mixture is a little chunky because of the cream cheese, but try to get it as creamy as you can; set aside.
  3. To assemble cake, poke holes with the back of a wooden spoon all over cake. Pour half of the pudding mixture on the cake and spread evenly. Next, add the crushed pineapple, spreading evenly. Next, add the other half of the pudding mixture, spreading evenly. Top with whipped topping and toasted coconut.
  4. To toast the coconut, simply add it it a sauté pan and place over medium heat. Stir constantly until toasted. Make sure it's cool before adding to the cake.
  5. Refrigerate and enjoy!
