Pineapple Cake
Kenziemine says:

This is an easy to make, delicious cake! All of my family loves pineapple, so it was no surprise that it disappeared quickly. Very pleased with all of the recipes I've tried so far. Thanks DaVita.

Pineapple Cake

Amazing sounding recipe. As I love pineapples I am surely going to try out this recipe. Pineapple cakes usually are very soft in its texture. I love baking cakes, but do not get time to bake them due to busy work schedule. My kids love eating cakes therefore my husband usually order desserts for them from the website But I am surely going to try out this recipe for my kids on this weekend.

For a healthier approach reduce the sugar to 1 1/2 cups for the cake and use Splenda for the icing, also use pineapple in their juice rather than in syrup. To reduce phosphorous use 2 egg whites and 1 egg yolk.

I made this tonight for my mother in law when she got out of dialysis and she loved it and so did the rest of my family. It was still baking while we ate dinner so it was hot out of the oven with the cream cheese icing and it was so good. I only made 1/2 recipe and it was just enough, with snack pieces left.

Very easy recipe and the icing gives it just the right amount of sweetness. Also keeps really well.

I love the pineapple cake. I love pineapple anyway and this cake is nice and moist. My husband likes it even better than I do.

I have been soooooo hungry for a pineapple upside down cake. I haven't made this yet but I will be soon. It looks easier than any recipies I've seen so far and for once I have all the ingredients. Thanks. I'll give top rating even before I try it!!!
