Easiest Pineapple Cake

The cream cheese frosting is put on the cake while it is still warm, the frosting seeps into the top of the cake, it’s incredible.  This is a dense , moist, pecan, pineapple filled cake topped with a creamy cream cheese frosting your family will thoroughly enjoy!
I didn’t have crushed pineapple in juice but I did have pineapple slices in juice.  I took the slices out of the can and put them into my food process without the juice and pulsed them until they were “crushed”.  I put the crushed pineapple and it’s juice into the bowl and added the other cake ingredients to it.

After all the cake ingredients were in the bowl, I mixed them together with an electric mixer just until they were combined.  That only took about 3 minutes tops.  I folded the chopped pecans ( mine were more crushed ) into the batter.  I poured the batter into a greased 13x 9 inch baking pan and placed it in the oven a 350 degree preheated oven for about 35 minutes.

 I poured the batter into a greased 13x 9 inch baking pan and placed it in the oven a 350 degree preheated oven for about 35 – 40 minutes. About ten minutes before the cake was done I made the frosting.

To make the frosting place the butter, cream cheese and vanilla in a large bowl, beat the ingredients together until they’re creamy. Gradually add the confectioners sugar to the bowl and beat until the frosting is smooth. Frost the cake while it’s still warm, garnish the top of the cake with crushed nuts if you like.
