- 1 box (18.25 ounces) yellow cake mix

- 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained

- 1 cup shredded coconut

- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

- 3 eggs

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (optional, for dusting)

Instructions :

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, crushed pineapple (including the juice), shredded coconut, unsweetened applesauce, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

3. Gently transfer the batter into the greased baking pan, ensuring an even distribution across the surface.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

5. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

6. Using the handle of a wooden spoon or a similar utensil, poke holes all over the surface of the cake.

7. Prepare the surprise filling: In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of crushed pineapple (drained) and 1/4 cup of shredded coconut. Spread this mixture evenly over the surface of the warm cake, gently pressing it into the holes.

8. Let the cake cool thoroughly within the pan until it reaches room temperature.

9. Once cooled, sprinkle the top of the cake with powdered sugar for a decorative touch, if desired.
