Made this for my daughter's 6th birthday which was a Hawaiian theme. All of the adults loved it but some of the kids were just "so so" with it. I would definitely make this again as it was quite good and knowing that it is light made all of us adults who are watching our weight feel less guilty about indulging.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! Thank you for the recipe! I made it for Easter dinner today--the only thing I changed was I upgraded the lo cal to regular whipped cream and cream cheese, pudding and pineapple with sugar(regular). I thought about changing the buttermilk to the pineapple juice but left it alone--the cake was extremely moist---VERY GOOD!! It is already requested for NEXT WEEK it was so good!!!

The instructions for the cream cheese, milk and pudding are not complete if you are not careful you will end up with a huge mess and wasted ingredients!! Thanks for being so clear.

This was an easy, tastey cake. My grandkids were coming so I left out the pineapple (picky eaters). I had some coconut leftover so I sprinkled that on half the cake. Everyone raved about it - I think I'll try it with a chocolate cake mix next.
