The Best and Easiest Pineapple Cake
Try this Easiest Pineapple Cake recipe and see if it is one that you and your family want to keep handy in order to have it whenever you are in the mood for pineapple. This is more of a snacking cake recipe than any other kind of cake recipe. It does not include any oils, fats or other fat substitute (such as applesauce or sour cream, or other choices such as these ones) so this cake will be a pretty simple one. It does include a lot of sugar, likely to make up for the loss of flavor that comes from a lack of fat in a recipe. One of the criticisms of low fat cooking is that the loss of flavor that generally comes from not using fat in a recipe is that another flavor, too often sugar, is bumped up in order to compensate for the lack of fat.
Your amateur cook can make this easiest pineapple cake recipe without much help. It is just a matter of tossing the ingredients together and whipping them up until they are well blended. The order of blending and so on is not really important with a snacking cake, since they are such simple cake recipe combinations. In this easiest pineapple cake recipe, probably adding the pineapple last is the best order to add that ingredient in to the cake mix and then the nuts. The nuts are listed as an optional addition to this snacking cake recipe, but I would recommend that you add the nuts in. They will help to some degree to compensate for the lack of fat that is absent from this easiest pineapple recipe, and also add in great taste and texture. As well, the nuts do add a lot of great nutrition that is hard to beat, so why not add them in where you can? Research shows that people who include nuts and seeds as part of their regular diet eat much more magnesium, calcium, fiber, protein, phosphorous and other important nutrients than people who do not include nuts or seeds as part of their regular food plan.
This easiest pineapple cake recipe includes standard cream cheese frosting. This particular cake recipe does include both butter as well as cream cheese in order to make the frosting. That means it will be a rich (and fat filled) addition to this snacking cake. So let the kids take over the kitchen to throw this quick and easy recipe together for dinner tonight, and let them make up the frosting that goes with this easiest pineapple cake recipe, too. They will love test tasting it, as they prepare it, and will feel proud of what they make.
