Better Than Sax Cake

OK, full disclosure. We changed the name of this cake to make it PG. 🙂

This is one for the girls.  We used to hoot with laughter when our American girl friend used to turn up with this cake.

But beware, if the boys get their hands on it, there won’t be any left. It’s to die for! So easy –peasy!



450g Cake Mix (you can make this yourself of buy a cake mix – the yellow cake mix by Betty Crocker works very well)

1 Large 20 oz (500 g) Can Crushed Pineapple

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Chopped Pecans or Walnuts (or Mixed)

½ pint (300m) Vanilla Custard – you can make your own or use a ready-made pot of vanilla custard (e.g. Ambrosia)

1 Cup Coconut

1 cup whipped cream
