"I've been making this cake for years, since I saw it in my Taste of Home magazine. It's a perfect summertime treat that everyone just loves! For a little extra pineapple flavor, use the juice from your crushed pineapple in place of the water for the box cake mix!"

"This is soooo good! It has great flavor. I took this to a carryin at work. It would be hard to store this cake in the refrigerator since it is made on a large cookie sheet and with all the loose topping it would be hard to cut up and store in smaller containers. But it is a great cake for get togethers!"
