When a friend brought this Do Nothing cake to church dinner, everyone insisted they get the recipe. So moist and delicious. This is really a cake that does nothing, unless you go back walking across the street to the neighbor to borrow the sugar! very funny! So simple, delicious and moist! Now I have to cut some to take to the neighbors before they’re gone. I love the way the icing penetrates the cake and makes it very moist. I punched holes in the cake so it could be soaked in easily.


°2 cups of sugar
°2 cups flour
°2 eggs
°1 teaspoon of baking soda
°1 teaspoon vanilla
°16 ounces pureed pineapple, undrained
°1/2 cup of butter
°1 cup of sugar
°3/4 cup evaporated milk
°1 cup of coconut
°1 cup of nuts
°1 teaspoon vanilla


Place first 6 ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined with a spoon.
Pour into a 13″ x 9″ cake tin.
Bake at 350°F 35-40 minutes.
For icing:
Mix the butter, sugar and evaporated milk together and cook over medium heat until it thickens slightly. (This usually takes about 5 minutes when boiling.)
Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients.
Pour over the hot cake.
Enjoy !
