Reviews for Pineapple Pudding Cake

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!
