You are going to love this easy pineapple cake recipe! One of my readers entered it into a baking contest, and it won second place. While I love layer cakes, sometimes simple is best. This pineapple cake needs no frosting, though it’s amazing with freshly whipped cream. It’s soft, moist, eggy and delicate.
When I first began making layer cake recipes, I was a nervous wreck. They used to scare me to death because I was always worried about messing up. But overtime with patience and practice I grew more comfortable with the process.
However, layer cakes can take a long time to put together. Sometimes I just want to eat some cake, you know? Especially if I’m preparing several recipes at once.
This pineapple cake recipe is fast, easy and has a perfect level of sweetness. It’s eggy like a pound cake, but with a softer texture similar to yellow cake. I love it so much that it ultimately wound up in the dessert chapter of my cookbook, The Gourmet Kitchen.
