pineapple easy cake

pineapple cake 9

this recipe is a result of a discontinued juice cleanse, not wanting to go to the grocery store on easter and not being in the mood to bake. usually when i try to bake under these harsh circumstances.. it doesn’t turn out. i firmly believe that when you bake you have to do so with love and/or time commitment.

i was searching around pinterest easter morning (good one ace) before church and i found a few different variations of this recipe. most pineapple recipes called for canned pineapple when i had a whole pineapple (already cut up for me). blended the crap out of it and viola! the recipe was just fine. so here is what i call “pineapple easy cake”

ingredients:

Cake:
16oz pineapple, pureed in a blender.
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of flour
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla

Icing:
1/2 cup of butter *unsalted
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of evaporated milk
1 cup of sweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp vanilla.

step 1: preheat the oven to 350 and grease or spray a 9×13 cake pan
step 2: lightly mix all the cake ingredients into a large bowl until incorporated. it’s ok if it’s a little lumpy

step 3: bake for 35 minutes until golden brown. this is a very moist cake so it will be browned on top and have a bread pudding like texture in the middle.

step 4: while the cake is baking, mix up the icing. in a medium saucepan mix butter, sugar, and evaporated milk together until it’s thick. i like to take the wooden spoon and dip it into the sauce, pull it out and if the spoon is still covered it’s thick enough. took me about 3 minutes at a slow boil.

step 5: remove the icing from the heat and stir in coconut flakes and the vanilla. drizzle over the cake (cake can be warm) and let sit for 15 minutes to soak up the icing awesomness.
