Old Fashioned Pineapple cake recipe. Always a crowd pleaser and I’m always asked for the recipe. Great Summer Dessert Recipe. I love this for pot lucks, it gets great reviews.
This Pineapple Cake recipe gets rave reviews every time I take it to a pot luck.
I got the recipe from our friends Greg and Cauleen who got the recipe from Greg’s cousin Jimmy’s wife, Lisa, who got the recipe from her 2nd cousin’s wife Micky Duffy who brought it to Lisa’s bridal shower 29 years ago. Each invitee to that shower was asked to bring their favorite recipe to share with the bride-to-be. Which by the way, isn’t that a wonderful idea?
Jimmy and Lisa live in Missouri and visit Greg and Cauleen each Summer. This photo of them was taken on a day trip to Vail. During their visit, we were invited over to Greg and Cauleen’s for what I thought was to be an innocent afternoon meal, meet cousins Jimmy and Lisa, and enjoy your normal run of the mill pot luck food, only to find myself blindsided by a couple of fabulous food discoveries.
A bottle of the best BBQ sauce I’ve ever tasted which was a Missouri souvenir they brought to Greg. The brand was Blues Hogs. And this delicious cake that Lisa prepared for the pot luck, which upon my first bite had me begging for the recipe…and I don’t even like cake.
Barbecue schmarbecue…let’s take a look at this cake.
Not only did Lisa serve up this delicious cake, but just happened to have with her the original hand written recipe that was given to her 29 years ago. A food blogger’s dream come true. You really should give recipe this a try.
It’s a super easy cake to make and with a can of crushed pineapple, incredibly moist and dense. When topped with that cream cheese, pecan frosting, every bite is divine and addicting.
Thanks to Lisa for sharing this with me, it’s now my go-to “wow them” recipe. And believe me there’s a reason Micky Duffy underlined “very good”
