Making this cake is actually so ridiculously easy, that it is often referred to as “do nothing cake”.

You don’t even need to pull out the hand mixer, you just use a bowl and a whisk. Stir all the ingredients together and pour the batter into your prepared 9×13″ pan. Told you it was easy!

The coconut frosting on this pineapple cake makes it extra moist and delicious.

There is no added fat in the cake, but trust me, it is still moist and delicious. This is partly due to the pineapple, but also because you poke holes in the top letting all that yummy syrup from the frosting sink into the cake. Oh so good!

Need a simple dessert in a hurry? Give this pineapple cake a try!
