The recipe for pineapple dessert has ingredients that can come together easily for an amateur baker and teach him or her plenty about baking in the mean time.

There is a lot to learn about baking dessert recipes after all. The measuring is down to a science and you have to make sure that all of the quantities of ingredients are spot on, especially for more complicated recipes like pastries and pie crusts. Cookie recipes can also be quite finicky and some cookie recipes rely on the exact required amounts of ingredients in order to turn out the way the recipe was intended to turn out. Certain cakes can also be quite tricky to get just right and some cake recipes even require that you measure the weight of the ingredients on a weigh scale and not just in your measuring cups with the millilitre measurements on them.

A commercial boxed cake mix can magically 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 and if you want you can just try some different things out and see how they work and make your own recipes eventually. In this recipe for pineapple dessert, the boxed mix is bolstered with plenty of additional eggs and butter. These two ingredients mean that the mix should have lots of flavour as well as moistness and good rise. The oil that is added into the recipe will also bring extra moistness to the mix which is always desired for a cake recipe. Then there are also mandarin oranges which are a nice touch that will bring orange-y taste and some texture to the cake. Mandarin orange and pineapple taste really good together too.

This is one of the pineapple desserts that has a creamy whipped topping, which goes great with the tropical flavour of pineapple, making it reminiscent of a pina colada drink. The pudding icing is a recipe that is not made a lot, but it is great for a simple cake recipe like this Pineapple Cream cake recipe. The coconut and pineapple will blend beautifully with the mandarin flavour in the cake, and make the entire cake taste rich and sweet as well as hinting at Hawaiian flavouring which is so yummy. The use of whipped cream - and make sure it is real for best flavour - will add a nice lightness to this topping.
