  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  • In a large mixing bowl combine your cake mix, oil or butter, water, eggs, and ⅔ a cup of the drained crushed pineapple.
  • When cake batter is combined pour into the baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  • When the cake is cooked use a large straw or the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes in the cake.
  • Make the filling by combining the instant pudding mix with the milk and 1 cup of pineapple juice.
