Hawaiian Wedding Cake

1 yellow cake mix
10 oz. crushed pineapple (do not drain)
8 oz. cream cheese
1 box instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 cup coconut

Prepare cake as directed on box in 9/13 inch pan and bake. Cool, punch holes with fork in the cake. Spread on pinapple with juice. Mix cream cheese, pudding mix, milk with mixer. Spread on top of pinapple. Spread on Cool Whip and top with coconut. Surprisingly light dessert. Enjoy!

Tips:
I've used a little larger can of pineapple than 10 oz. and it never hurt anything.

Getting a smooth mixture of cream cheese, milk and pudding mix is easier if the milk and cream cheese aren't too cold or if you use a food processer instead of a mixer.

I've never used a whole cup of coconut. Just sprinkle on to taste. If you don't like it, you don't have to use it.

By request of Esther:

Carmel Sauce

Melt some butter in a sauce pan.

Add enough brown sugar to make a thick paste like substance.

Add half and half or heavy cream, not too much or it will be too runny.

Boil for about 1 min.

Let cool or place pan in cold water to thicken

Add real vanilla

This works for me:

Caramel Sauce

½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup whipping cream
½ cup real butter (unsalted)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cook sugars, cream and butter over medium heat until it comes to a full boil and starts to thicken. Stir in the vanilla.

Boston Cream Pie

Cake:
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Butter
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 cups cake flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1/3 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup milk

Sift the flour and baking powder together and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter until soft and creamy. Add the sugar gradually. Mix thoroughly. Add the eggs all at once and beat thoroughly. Gradually add the milk and flour mixture alternating until all is mixed in. Pour into two greased 8" cake pans. Bake at 375° for about 25 minutes.

Custard Filling:
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 cups scalded milk or cream
2 slightly beaten eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla

Combine the sugar, flour, salt in a bowl. Swirl in the milk or cream until smooth and thick. Add the eggs and stir in. Cook in a double boiler until the eggs thicken. Cool and add the vanilla. Chill thoroughly.
Put the custard between the cake layers and glaze with chocolate if desired.

Chocolate Glaze
2 cups sugar
2 ounces baking chocolate
2 tbsp. White corn syrup
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla

In a saucepan, heat the sugar, chocolate, corn syrup and milk stirring only until the sugar is dissolved. Cook to the soft ball stage (238°). Add the butter and remove from heat. Place the saucepan in cold water. When the icing is lukewarm, add the vanilla. Beat it to the right consistency and spread on top of the Boston Crème Pie!

Making this today to take to my dad's tommorrow - this is one moist cake!

Fresh Peach Cake

1 1/4 cup oil
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
3 cups peaches, sliced
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Beat oil and sugar - add eggs on at a time, then add remaining ingredients.

Bake at 325 for 1 hour.

Glaze

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 stick butter

Boil for 2 minutes and spoon over cake.

You can doube glaze recipe to make it really moist.

Use a bundt pan, might take a little longer than an hour to bake. Also, poke holes in cake with a fork before spooning glaze on.

Easy -

Yellow cake mix - make as usual in 9 x 13 pan

After it's cooled, poke holes in it and pour a can of Eagle Brand condensed milk or pina colada mix all over it.

Ice with Cool Whip and garnish with coconut!
