Pineapple Pecan Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

by Sheryl

It is my kids birthday today! I thought I would surprise her with her favourite Pineapple Pecan Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I want this day to be very special because it is her 7th birthday and we are having a small surprise party for her. Since this cake is pretty easy to make, I was able to bake it before she caught me! That was close!

My daughter loves it, she won’t stop kissing me! Her friends can’t get over it, too. Even their moms asked me how to make it! Crazy, right? So I shared them my recipe and they surprise on how simple it is to make.

Try it for yourself, I promise you your family will love it!

What you need…

For the cake

2 c flour
2 c sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 (20-ounce) can of crushed pineapple with juice
1 cup chopped pecans, optional
For the Icing
1 stick butter, softened
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese softened
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla

What you need to do

1. Let’s start with the cake. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar and baking soda. Add the eggs, pineapple along with its juice, and the pecans (it’s up to you if you want to use pecans, I like mine with lots of it). Stir until moistened. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13-inch buttered baking pan. Bake for about 35 minutes in a preheated 350°F oven. Insert a toothpick to check doneness, if it comes out clean then your cake is done. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

2. For the icing, combine cream cheese, butter, confectioner sugar, and vanilla. Gently beat until smooth.

3. It is time to frost the cake! Don’t be shy, pour everything on it. Serve and enjoy! Refrigerate if there’s any left. Great with coffee for a great afternoon snack.
