I’m going to re-name this recipe to Pineapple Dream. Is that OK? I have nothing against preachers. I love preachers. My uncle is a preacher.

But Pineapple Dream sounds so…dreamy…and tasty. I got this recipe from my mom, (AKA Mimi, or AKA Ms Williams Sonoma) She has many names.

Make it and enjoy it. I have and I am!

Pineapple Dream

cake ingredients:

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

2 eggs

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup nuts ( I didn’t use them – don’t like nuts in my food!)

1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, undrained


frosting ingredients:

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1  3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup nuts ( didn’t use them – don’t like nuts in my frosting!)

2 tsp vanilla


Mix up cake ingredients and pour in a greased baking dish. And get this! You can just stir it up! No blender required!  Bake 350 for 30 to 45 minutes. ( do the toothpick test to check for done-ness. Or just eyeball it, if you are a really good cook)

Let it cool a while.

Mix the frosting ingredients and frost it. Also, no blender needed. I just used a whisk.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
