Pineapple Condensed Milk Cake


Pineapple Condensed Milk Cake

1 box yellow cake mix

1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple in juice, DO NOT DRAIN

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk (such as Eagle Brand)

1 8 oz container Cool Whip

1 8oz can crushed pineapple in juice, WELL DRAINED


Mix the cake mix according to directions, omitting water. Add 20 oz can of crushed pineapple to the batter. Mix well.

Pour into a greased 9×13 casserole dish or cake pan. Bake according to directions or until golden brown (about 30 minutes for my oven.)

Let cool for about 10 minutes. Poke holes all over the cake with a fork or a butter knife.

Pour the condensed milk all over the cake, covering the entire surface completely with it.

After a few minutes the cake will soak it up.

In a separate bowl mix together the cool whip and small can of drained crushed pineapple.

When the cake has completely cooled, spread the cool whip mixture on top of the cake.

  1. Do you mean sweetened condensed milk (such as Eagle Brand) instead of condensed or evaporated milk (which we call canned cream) in my part of the country)? The cake looks delicious!

    1. Recipe says , Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk.
      The grocery boy shelf stocker will most likely get it for you. Hope this helps.

  3. Your ingredients list say a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple. Directions say 28 oz can of crushed pineapple. which is correct?

  4. This sounds so dang good. I hope to make it very soon. Thanks for the recipe.

    Don’t know why but this reminds me of a dessert my mom used to make years ago. She called it rice and pineapple pudding. Sooo good!


    1. Would love this chocolate recipe also.
      This too sounds like it will be a regular…yum! Luv chocolate. Pls feel free to send to my E.M. TNX

  5. I’ve never made this cake with the pineapple but sounds wonderful. I do make a coconut cake similar to this where you poke holes and pour Eagle Brand on top. It’s delicious too. I even bet a coconut/pineapple cake (mixed) would be great.

    1. Would love this coconut recipe. Love these kind of cakes & coconut is a family favorite. Have similar type – but it is a rum cake. Knocks your socks off… literally speaking!

  6. Looks yummy! Would it work using a gluten free cake mix and what can I use instead of Cool Whip? Thanks.

  7. Can someone explain to me what cool whip is as we don’t have that in Australia is there anything that resembles it that you can compare it too. Could you just whip up some cream and fold the pineapple into it and spread that over and refrigerate. ?

  8. I make something similar but use cream of coconut instead of the condensed milk. So yummy!!!

  9. So Easy to make such a wonderful cake I topped it with coconut and chopped pecans then the cool whip. Thanks for the recipe

  10. You could add some whole milk to sweetened condensed milk and top with home made whipped cream ..which would make it a pineapple tres leche cake…lol….I make a coconut one that way except use coconut milk…it is amazing!!!

  11. This cake turned out amazing! Will definitely make again.
    Could not find an 8oz can of pineapple so just toasted some unsweetened coconut and sprinkled on the whipped topping. This is like a Tres Leche cake.

  12. I just mixed up one and also added fresh strawberries and blueberries into the mix with the pineapple. Blended it with my mixer. It is smelling divine in the oven. I hope that it comes out OK since I added the extra berries. I’m also going to add the strawberries and blueberries into my Cool Whip along with the pineapple. Can’t wait!

  13. The cake is really really sweet. Too much for my taste. I love tres leches cake and it kind of reminded me of it, but the sweetness is too overpowering. My young son liked it, but no surprise because he likes sweets. Maybe adding evaporated milk would help.

  14. Just made this for Christmas. The cake itself was delicious and moist before I poured the condensed milk. The milk made it taste almost like a Tres Leches cake. Whole family loved it. Will definitely be keeping this recipe in rotation.

  15. I made this cake for our Christmas party,it was awesome,my friends and family loved it. Thanks for sharing. I’m making one for my daughter in Law’s Birthday next week; only I’m gonna add toasted coconut on top.

  16. Looks great !! But can you use can icing mixed with the pineapple in stead of the cool whip my husband does”t like cool whip topping .

  17. So directions say mix according to box cake directions, but omitting water. So do I still add eggs and oil??

  18. OHHH this cake is DELISH! I followed the recipe and I wouldn’t change a thing.. Plan on making it again and again 🙂 Thank You for sharing.

  19. Made this cake yesterday and it was divine. Everyone in the family loved it!
    Yes, its even better the next day. But, we have very little left over for tomorrow.

  20. What weight of cake mix? Duncan Hines which is the brand I prefer is currently producing 15.25 ounces. Many older recipes were based on 18 ounce boxes. Just need the clarification.
    Recipe sounds delicious and super easy.

  21. I didn’t have the small can of pineapple for the topping, so I’m adding sweetened coconut and some coconut flavoring to the topping. Should be delicious! Like a Pina Colada cake. 😋😋

  22. I need to bring a dessert for football party. We won’t be eating till halftime. I won’t be able to refrigerate the cake for a couple hours. Do you think it will be okay with the cool whip topping?

  23. before pouring eagle brand on the cooked cake as directed on the box, do we cool the cake first, could I just add skorr pieces after pouring on the eagle brand?
    Thanking you in advance
