jill's BTS cake

this is the other bts cake i talked about. jill was my good friend in high school, and she lived close to our school so we used to go to her house for lunch a lot. and when she had this cake, this is all we ate. and we loved it. i actually prefer this one over the chocolate...and that's saying a lot. i love chocolate. so let's get started.

you'll need a yellow cake mix, instant vanilla pudding mix, milk, crushed pineapple, sugar, and cool whip.make the cake according to package directions


(or have your helper do it for you).
while the cake is still warm, poke 9-12 holes in it with the handle-end of a wooden spoon.
this is too many. i always do too many. i like it that way, though.while the cake is cooling, put 9 oz. crushed pineapple in a saucepan,
then add a cup of sugar.
stir together and bring to a boil.
boil together for five minutes
like this.
then remove from heat and let it cool completely.
once the cake and pineapple are both completely cooled, pour the pineapple on top of the cake. make sure the pineapple gets down in the holes, and some on the edges too.
spread it around, gently smushing in the pineapple. smushing...is that even a word? you know what i mean though.
like this.
now make your pudding mix according to the directions--nothing special, just regular pudding.
then pour it on top of the pineapple.
and spread it around, making sure it gets in the holes too.
and on the sides! yum. i loooove pudding. seriously. any kind. oh, except rice pudding. yuck. but any other kind is delish. especially on cake. especially on this cake.
then put it in the fridge for at least an hour so the pudding can set.
after the pudding is set (or right before you serve it), cover it in cool whip. i looove cool whip, so i use a lot.
and make it pretty, with a spoon.
what? you don't know how to use a spoon to make a cake pretty? huh. well, here's a quick video so you can see how it's done.

did that help? i hope so. when you're finished, it should look a bit like this:
people, yum doesn't begin to describe this cake. it actually might be better than....you know. although i forgot to take a picture of the cake after it was cut and on a plate. it looks almost as good as it tastes.

one tip...this cake is actually better the day after you make it, when the pudding has had time to set and the pineapple has flavored the cake a little. but it's still good the day you make it, too. just a heads up. oh, and keep it refrigerated. but i didn't have to tell you that. did i?

The only BTS cake that I knew of was the one with chocolate and caramel, etc. But I thought that this sounded yummy so I made it for Greg and some friends the other night. It was a hit! Greg totally turned up his nose when he heard what was in it, but I think that he's eaten about 1/2 of it all by himself. Yummy!
