Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

it looks so delicious I can't wait to make it probably tomorrow

one of the best cakes I have ever made

I will make again, easy to prepare ,daughter loved it

First, I bought the pillsbury s.f. brand. I thought thats the only 1. Anyways. I baked for 25 minutes. Checked and my toothpick came out clean. A while later I checked to see if cooled and my cake drooped on part of it. Put my finger on it and it was goopy. Stuck it back in the oven. My cake overall wasn't as moist, and I'm not sure wether it's because I put it back in the oven, or just the cake itself. 2nd, I'm T1 diabetic, so carbs are important, and for a box of pillsbury cake mix there's 1300 carbs. So,how was it only 6.3 carbs? I calculated 46 through my fitness pal.

Hi there! To keep the cake from drooping, try to avoid over-beating the batter. Too much air in the batter can cause it to droop. Also, another tip, is try to avoid opening the door during baking as that can also cause the cake to droop. The nutrition is based on per serving (there are 18 servings in this recipe), not for the whole cake. Hope that helps! :)

I have not made this "Easiest Pineapple Cake" yet and was wondering if I have to add the instant vanilla pudding mix as is from the box, or if I have to prepare it first according to the directions on the pudding box? Thanks.

I have a question about the size of pudding box. I couldn't find a 1.5 oz box. Is it 5.1 instead. Need to know before I make it. Thx


Hello! You are looking for a 1.4 oz box that is sugar free pudding, not regular pudding. The brand is Jell-o. :) Hope this is helpful.

I made this for a pot luck at my church and they loved it! They all were very surprised to find out that it was sugar free! Easy to make, delicious to eat!
