Reviews for Pineapple Pudding Cake
Sort By :
"This was very good, but I'm not sure what I think about the cream cheese...That part was not quite sweet enough when mixed with only pudding and no additional sugar. Otherwise great! I think it would be good with strawberries instead of pineapple to compliment the cream cheese.I used the recipe as a guideline, but made my own cake and pudding from scratch, and no fat-free or sugar-free stuff. I also topped with toasted coconut instead of walnuts.We were not patient enough to wait for it to chill so it might be better cold!"
"I made this cake last night for the family, since they love pineapple...Three cheers for this wonderful recipe. I even like it and I am not a pineapple eater. Thanks Kathleen for sharing!"
"I saw this recipe about 2 years ago in the Kraft Foods cookbook. I actually changed everything from fat-free to regular."
"Took this cake to a family gathering everyone loved it. This cake is moist and YUMMY!"
