“For there is born
To you this day…
Who is Christ the Lord.
– Luke 2:11”
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 teaspoon coconut
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups coconut
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup plus 2
1 teaspoon coconut
Add all ingredients together, adding the coconut last, and beat until batter is smooth. Bake in a greased and floured tube at 300 degrees for one hour and 15 minutes.
Take right out of the oven and glaze!
For glaze, cook two minutes and pour over warm cake. Let cake cool before removing.
Andy’s Note: This is one of the best coconut cakes that I have ever eaten. Use your mixer and you will have it made. Carolyn, thanks again for sharing this wonderful recipe.
Pineapple Fluff Cake
1 Duncan Hines Butter Golden cake mix
3/4 cup oil
One large Cool Whip
One large box vanilla instant pudding

Mix all ingredients and mix well. Do not prepare cake mix as directed on box; prepare with only ingredients listed. Use a 9x 13-inch pan or even larger. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely before adding topping.
For topping, mix all ingredients well. It should be fluffy. Cover cool cake with topping and refrigerate. Chill well before serving.
Andy’s Note: I love this cake! It will serve a whole bunch of people. You can decorate this cake with pineapple slices and red cherries in the middle of the slices. This is such a beautiful holiday dish!

Andy’s Note: I had a young lady to call me the other day to see if I had this recipe. It is really good to add to a candy or cookie tray during the holidays.
There is nothing like a holiday to bring people home for fun, feasting, and family togetherness.
