      hello alicat! it's like the doppelgänger of the cake on the cover of dorie greenspan's baking book. it looks like it but i think it's lighter in texture and sweetness.

      Thank you SO MUCH! I went to the Honolulu Star Bulletin website and got the Dream Cake recipe. It sounds just right for the Hawaiian Dream Cake that I remember. I'm going to bake it for my Husband on Father's Day! He will be so surprised. He just got back from California and nearly bought one from King's Hawaiian Bakery to bring home. I've been looking for a recipe for a lot of years now and most of those I find on search for 'Hawaiian Dream Cake' are for pineapple/coconut cakes. Good but NOT the same thing as this. Thanks again!

      I loved this cake and used to buy it from King's Bakery. It is my utmost favorite. My neighbor makes a cake that is similiar. She takes an ordinary chocolate cake box mix and ADDS a can of 7-Up or Sprite to it. Yes, the whole can, and yes, you read it right about using a whole can of pop. Make up the cake mix like you normally would. The cake bakes up really light and fluffy. Then she takes a box of chocolate pudding and mixes Cool-Whip into it.

      My neighbor's name is LaVerne, and she's from Hawaii, like I am. I don't know where she got her recipe from, but it is wonderful, and reminds me of the Dream Cake I used to buy from King's Bakery.

      By the way, I contacted King's Bakery, and they didn't want to share their recipe, said it was an "old family recipe," and it couldn't be published.

      To the person who sent in the picture: Where do you live, and when are you going to make this again? :)

      Aloha from the state of Washington from someone who misses Hawaii every day of her life,
