Spring can be hard in the PNW sometimes; it just can't decide if it should just rain for days on end or be sunny. I think finally here at the end of May, it has decided to give us a break with some beautiful warm, sunny days. The 80 degrees is already too hot for my husband, but I'll take it over the cold rainy days.
Thus speaking of Summer days, I'm finally sharing these amazing Pineapple layered cake that I made for my sister's pineapple bridal shower/party that we had for her last summer. Yes, I'm a year behind, but this is still worth sharing and every bite is worth eating.
For the pineapple cake recipe, I used yellow boxed cake for the base and added crushed canned pineapple which gives it such flavor and adds so much moisture! And then the pineapple frosting really was the icing on the cake. It's even better than a pineapple upside down cake...like ten times better.
Pineapple Layered Cake Recipe
Prepare your yellow cake as normal BUT substitute the water for the juice from the can of crushed pineapple. Also add the pudding to the cake mix straight out of the box. Cook both cakes in two separate circle pans or one right after another.
Let cool. Using thread, carefully slice each cake into halves. Starting with one of the cakes on a cake stand, add a little pineapple frosting. Then add another cake half. Repeat until all the cake and frosting is used. Make sure you add some frosting on top as well. Final touch, add the top of pineapple to the cake.
And make sure to check out the rest of the Pineapple Themed Bridal Shower with pineapple party decorations and pineapple food.
