For the Topping:

  • 1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

For the Frosting:

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Prepare the Cake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the white cake mix, coconut milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.

  4. Prepare the Topping: While the cake is baking, combine the crushed pineapple (with juice) and granulated sugar in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Poke the Cake: Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and use a fork to poke holes all over the top of the cake. Pour the pineapple mixture evenly over the hot cake, spreading it out with a spatula if necessary. Allow the cake to cool completely.
  6. Make the Frosting: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, beating until the frosting is light and fluffy.
