Sunshine Cake

Sunshine Cake Slice

Just one bite of this beautiful, light, fluffy, tonguegasmic cake and you’ll understand immediately why I’m calling it a Sunshine Cake.

This is super simple, a GREAT recipe to make with the kids and the absolute perfect treat for those hot summer days.

Sunshine Cake

adapted from a Jello box recipe

  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple in juice (do not drain)
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) French Vanilla Instant Jello Pudding
  • 2 C Cool Whip (thawed, obviously)
  • 1 (10 oz) round Angel Food Cake
  • Fresh Fruit: Strawberries and Blueberries are my suggestions
  1. Slice the Angel Food Cake into 3 layers a hint.. freeze the cake for about 15 minutes to half an hour before slicing
  2. Mix the pineapple and pudding mix.  Slowly add in Cool Whip, until fully blended. (This is a great part for the kids)
  3. Spread the pudding/whip/pineapple mixture on top of the bottom layer of cake and top with sliced strawberries (and blueberries)
  4. Top with layer 2 of the Angel Food Cake.
  5. Repeat the layering, mix, fruit steps on layers 2 and 3.

My cake only has strawberries because the store was out of blueberries and we *sob* don’t have a farmers market.
