Pineapple cake is a type of cake that includes pineapple as one of its main ingredients. It can be made in various forms,
such as a traditional layer cake or a sheet cake, and may be frosted or topped with pineapple or other fruits.
The cake may also include coconut or other tropical flavors. Pineapple cake is a popular dessert option, especially in tropical or subtropical regions where pineapples are grown.
1 (20 oz) can of crushed pineapple, drained, 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature, 1 cup granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the frosting
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature, 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined. Stir in the crushed pineapple.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely. While the cake is cooling, make the frosting by creaming together the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl.
Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract. Once the cake is cooled, spread the frosting evenly over the top and sides of the cake.
Slice and serve, and enjoy your delicious pineapple cake! Note: you can garnish the cake with some pineapple slices, grated pineapple or coconut flakes.
