Amazingly Wonderful Coconut Cake (AWCC)

Being as I am incapable of baking from scratch in an electric oven, I have to use a cake mix to start with. Ordinary Coconut cake will NOT do, absolutely not, so here is what I do. :

1 Dunkin Hines yellow cake mix (white mix has milk in it, so we can't use it)

1 8-oz can Crushed Pineapple (the small can)

1/2 cup extra light olive oil

3 eggs

1/2 cup Coconut Milk (found in Oriental food section of grocery store)

Sometimes I add 1/2 cup coconut to the mix, sometimes not

In mixing bowl, combine above ingredients and beat on low to combine, then increase speed to medium for 2 minutes, till light and fluffy. Pour into 2 greased and floured cake pans and bake according to directions on the box. 2 8-inch pans for 30-35 minutes, etc. Cake is done when the top springs back at finger touch and top is golden browned.

Let cool 5 minutes, then remove from pans, and transfer to wire racks and let cool completely

Sometimes this ends in disaster, sometimes not. *;-./

(I may have the cooling time wrong.)

When completely cooled, frost with white frosting, and sprinkle with your favorite coconut, sweetened or unsweetened.
