Pineapple Cream Cake is a fabulous rich and creamy cake that will appeal to every one at your dinner table tonight. This is another perfect recipe for the beginning cook. The recipe uses a commercial boxed mix that gets a flavor boost by adding some home made ingredients in to it. The frosting is an interesting blend that begins with a pudding mix. So these things can come together easily for an amateur baker and teach him or her plenty about baking in the mean time.

A commercial box mix can be turned in to a delicious and nearly home made tasting delight just by adjusting a few of the ingredients. There are plenty of ways to do this, whether by adding more sugar, more butter, additional eggs, a different liquid such as buttermilk, or even vanilla, grated orange or lemon and so on. You are really only limited by your imagination here. In this recipe, the boxed mix is bolstered with plenty of additional eggs and butter. These two ingredients mean that the mix should have lots of flavor as well as moistness and good rise. The oil that is also added will also bring moistness to the mix. The mandarin oranges are a nice touch that will bring orange-y taste and some texture to the cake. That will taste great.

The pudding icing is one that is not made a lot, but is great for a simple cake recipe such as this one. The coconut and pineapple will pick up on the mandarin flavor in the cake, and make the entire cake taste rich and sweet as well as hinting at Hawaiian flavoring, which is nice. The use of whipped cream (and make sure it is real for best flavor) will add a nice lightness to this topping. The instructions are easy and straightforward and your young baker will have plenty of success in this endeavor. Enjoy this cake soon!
