Happiness engineering

So life ratttles on in the most unsatisfactory way.

I felt that baking a cake might help – and it did.

This version of the ‘Do Nothing Cake‘ is delicious. It is so tasty and made me feel very good. It’s win-win.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice (do not drain)

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup chopped nuts pecans or walnuts
  • 1 cup shredded coconut


  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla extract and pineapple. Stir with a spoon to combine all ingredients. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray and add batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 -35 minutes until the center tests done. Make frosting below and poke holes in hot cake with a wooden spoon.
