Do nothing cake


When a friend brought this Do Nothing cake to church dinner, everyone insisted they get the recipe. So moist and delicious. This is really a cake that does nothing, unless you go back walking across the street to the neighbor to borrow the sugar! very funny! So simple, delicious and moist! Now I have to cut some to take to the neighbors before they're gone. I love the way the icing penetrates the cake and makes it very moist. I punched holes in the cake so it could be soaked in easily.


°2 cups of sugar

°2 cups flour

°2 eggs

°1 teaspoon of baking soda

°1 teaspoon vanilla

°16 ounces pureed pineapple, undrained


°1/2 cup of butter

°1 cup of sugar

°3/4 cup evaporated milk

°1 cup of coconut

°1 cup of nuts

°1 teaspoon vanilla


Place first 6 ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined with a spoon.

Pour into a 13" x 9" cake tin.

Bake at 350°F 35-40 minutes.

For icing:

Mix the butter, sugar and evaporated milk together and cook over medium heat until it thickens slightly. (This usually takes about 5 minutes when boiling.)

Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients.

Pour over the hot cake.

Enjoy !
