Anti-Crabby Cake

by 247tasty

My heart beats a little faster when I first tasted this super moist textured cake. It won my heart at first bite. Its heavenly sweet pineapple flavor is irresistible, refreshing, and oh so delicious! This anti-crabby cake is a simple dessert that I’ve been making since. It’s easy to make, quick, and the ingredients are simple. I make the frosting while baking the cake because I want to frost the cake right in the pan. It’s easier that way, and because the cake is still hot, it absorbs the frosting perfectly. I let the cake cool for a bit and chill before serving.

My husband loves pineapple and this cake is his favorite. This is his perk me up dessert. Whenever he is feeling low, he only asks for one thing. To have a slice of his favorite anti-crabby cake.
