This one comes with a bonus!!
You can use stuff up from your pantry too!
Take 1 cake mix (yellow or white)

While that’s baking, take 1 (20 oz) can pineapple (crushed or tidbits) – pour (with juice) in a saucepan, add 1 cup sugar, heat until sugar dissolves, bring to a boil and then remove from heat.
Take 2 small packages of pudding
{vanilla or banana, etc – again, whatever you have in the pantry}
and make according to directions, let set in the fridge.
