I found this in a Southern Living recipe pamphlet a couple of years ago at my sister’s in Michigan when we were having a family reunion there. It was hot summer time and I wanted to fix something fruity, light, and different. This went over really well
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 angel food cake mix
20 oz crushed pineapple, drained & divided
8 oz reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
1 1/8 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coconut extract
16 oz reduced-fat Cool Whip, thawed
½ cup sweetened, flaked coconut
2 to 4 Tbl toasted, sweetened, flaked coconut
DIRECTIONS
Prepare cake according to package directions. Gently fold 1 cup pineapple into the batter. Spoon batter into 3 wax paper-lined 9” round pans. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pans on wire rack. (Cakes must be completely cold). Beat cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla and coconut extracts at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth and fluffy. Fold in Cool Whip, ½ cup coconut, and remaining pineapple. Inver 1 cake layer on plate; remove wax paper and spread with 1/3 of cream cheese mixture. Repeat procedure with remaining cake layers and cream cheese mixture, ending with cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle toasted coconut evenly on top. Cover and chill 4 hours. Cut with a serrated knife. Refrigerate any leftovers.


Recipe note: To toast coconut, place in a heavy skillet over medium heat stirring constantly until golden brown.
