7 Tbsp. softened butter
1 (20-oz.) can crushed pineapple, with juice
1 1/2 cups sugar

1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 stick margarine
1 box powdered sugar

Following package directions, combine cake mix, water, eggs and butter, and bake cake. With a fork, punch holes in cake while hot. Boil undrained pineapple and sugar on low heat for 6 minutes. Pour over cake.
