This is delicious! That being said, there is one flaw in this recipe; corn starch should be used for thickening in the topping instead of flour, probably about 2 TBSP would work. There is a flour taste to the topping and it doesn’t have the smooth, pleasing texture it should have. I followed the recipe except used a whole cup of whipped cream in the topping. I will definitely make this again, using corn starch as the thickening agent.

A very good summer time recipe. I don’t understand the ones that bought another can of pineapple juice or used orange juice–there is plenty of juice from the draining of the can of pineapple. I agree with using cornstarch to thicken and the toasted coconut on top. I used crushed Nilla cookies instead of flour in the crust and used coconut instead of almonds.

I have been making this recipe for years now. It is great, takes a little time but its worth it! Make it in the evening for the next day. It tastes very fresh and fruity – great in the summer too! You can also use margarine and chopped almonds or no almonds at all. Sometimes I also use only 1 pck. regular cream cheese and 1 pck. low fat. But this cake is worth every calorie in it!!

Have made this recipe for two groups and was asked for the recipe many times. However, the only thing I had a problem with was the extra pineapple juice in the cream cheese. Seemed a shame to buy a whole bottle of pineapple juice just for 2/3 cup. Would definitly recommend this recipe.

Instead of buying pineapple juice I just used orange juice in the cream cheese layer. It worked wonderfully. This dessert was great – took it to a church pitch-in and they raved. Make it the day before and let it set overnight before serving. I am not a huge pineapple fan, but I even enjoyed it!
