This is my favorite cake of all time

  • 1 yellow cake mix (I always use Duncan Hines) (Don't use any odd flavored cake mixes for this, would be too much, and I believe Angle food cake mix would be to weak)
  • Ingredients to make cake mix (eggs, oil, etc.)
  • 3 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix (when I make a large cake I use three large vanilla pudding mixes with one cup less milk. and 1/2 cup to warm the cream cheese)
  • 3 1/2 cups cold milk (I warm half a cup of the milk to help soften the cream cheese, mix, then add to the pudding mixture)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (two for a large batch)
  • 20 ounces crushed pineapple, drain and reserve juice for cake (two for a large batch)
  • 1 large container cool whip thawed (2 for a large version)
