Commercial mixes have become great last minute or in a hurry choices when you just do not have time to choose and make up a cake recipe from scratch. Today, you can buy organic commercial mixes that are practically as good as those you might make yourself. (And nobody has to know you didn’t make it from scratch, anyway.) This particular pineapple dessert recipe makes a nice whipped topping also using commercial whip and blends in some pineapple with it to create a tangy frosting. As well, canned pineapple is dotted on the top of the cake to give it a pretty and sunny appearance. Canned fruit is sometimes not the best choice for anything, really, but pineapple cans beautifully, and can be used in all sorts of dishes, even savory ones. Here, the pineapple gives a tart splash to the frosting and adds a bit of depth to the entire cake recipe.

Pineapple is a curious and wonderful fruit. It grows on a rather short, swarthy wide-leaved plant in deep southern climes, and takes several years to fruit. The pineapple itself takes about six months to fully mature. Once cut from the plant, the pineapple does not really continue to ripen, so it can be shipped without concern about rotting (unlike many other fruits that have a very short shelf life). They are the second most favorite tropical fruit sold in North America behind bananas. Pineapples are a beautiful balance of tart and sweet that work well in many savory or sweet dishes. Pineapples contain plenty of nutrients, especially vitamin C, manganese and copper. They are also good for your digestion, provide important anti-inflammatory benefits and perhaps most important, the enzyme bromelain, an important health-promoting compound. So you have plenty of reasons to make this pineapple dessert recipe beyond just its wonderful taste!
