How To Make: Do Nothing Cake

How To Make: Do Nothing Cake


Cake :

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large can (20 Oz) crushed pineapple with juice

Frosting :

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 can (5½ ounce) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup shredded coconut


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all the batter ingredients until just combined.
  • Pour into a greased 13×9 baking dish, and bake for 30-40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick, inserted in the middle comes out clean. Don’t overbake.
  • While the cake is still baking, prepare the frosting.
  • Heat the butter, sugar, and evaporated milk in a small saucepan until boiling.
  • Cook and stir for about 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  • Remove from heat and add in the coconut and pecans.
  • Remove the cake from the oven, and using a kabob skewer or wooden spoon handle, or some similarly-sized object, begin poking holes in the cake.
  • You need holes so that hot frosting has plenty of room to get down and soak the cake.
  • Pour frosting over the hot cake, spreading it out to make sure it’s all evenly dispersed.
  • Allow cake to cool for a bit before cutting.
  • Due to the frosting seeping into the cake, it is very moist!
  • Enjoy
