Yield: 12 servings


  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack.
In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and butter; beat until fluffy. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and reserved pineapple and beat well. Add remaining powdered sugar and lime juice as needed for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake; store in refrigerator.

pineapple cake, Guest Vee

Cake tasted great. As of today it has been at least a year since we tried this recipe but I am CRAVING it so I'll give it a go. We made two of these cakes within weeks of each other because it was so delicious! Thanks for posting this recipe
