Do Nothing Cake

I came across this and it's basically a variation of a dump cake. Some have adjusted the amount of sugar because they thought it was too sweet ( ???) but I do not. Give it a whirl, it's easy and fast to make.

Cake Ingredients:

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour - all purpose
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
16 oz. crushed pineapple  - undrained.


Place the first 6 ingredients in a bowl and mix till blended with a spoon.

Pour into greased 13 x 9 pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 45 minutes.

Icing Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup evaporated milk.
1 cup coconut 9 sweetened
1 cup nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla


Mix butter , sugar and evaporated milk together and cook over medium heat until thickened..aprox. 5 minutes at a boil.

Remove from heat and add final 3 ingredients.

Pour over hot cake .

Note: Occasionally due to the whims of the baking gods, the sugar in the icing will form crystals as it cools. If this happens, just throw this bad boy under the broiler until the sugar careful not to burn the sugar, it won't take long to melt.....or don't wait too long to serve. Either way, the sugar crystals can be crisis.

Happy Hips Y'all.
