Pineapple Coconut Pecan Poke Cake-

Hi Friends.

I made this cake for company this week.

It was loved by all and the easiest cake ever!

Sometimes called a 'Do Nothing' or 'Tornado' Cake.

Poke Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

For the Cake:

2 cups Flour

1 tsp. Baking Soda

1 cup Sugar

2 Eggs- beaten

1tsp. Vanilla 

1  20 oz. can Crushed Pineapple in Juice- 

Add Juice also!


Mix ingredients in a large bowl.

Pour into a greased 9'' x 13'' pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 28- 35 min.

Until golden, check to see if done with toothpick.

Remove from oven.

Just poke away! 

I  used a bamboo skewer to poke holes into the cake

right out of the oven.

Next prepare the topping:

1/2 cup Butter

                                                                 2/3 cup Evaporated Milk

                                                                        1 cup Sugar

1 cup Sweetened  flaked or shredded Coconut

1 cup chopped Pecans

1/2 tsp. Vanilla 


Melt butter, 

then add the rest of the topping ingredients.

Stir well.

Pour over cake.

Use a fork or spatula to spread evenly.

Just set on table for now to cool- and refrigerate later

Serve warm or straight from the fridge.

 Serves 12

Can be made one day ahead!

It quickly became a family favorite.
