Pinch this recipe! The cake is as moist and delicious as it looks... and the icing is a treat in itself.


Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Add eggs and oil, stirring til all dry ingredients are moistened. DO NOT BEAT. Stir in vanilla, butter flavoring, pineapple, 1/2 cup of pecans and bananas.
Spoon batter into 3 well greased and floured 9 inch cake pans. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes.
Icing: Combine 16 oz. of cream cheese and 2 sticks oleo (softened), add 2 lbs of powdered sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir 2 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. butter flavor and 1/2 cup pecans. It will make extra icing, I save the extra icing and add a dollop to each slice of the cake when sliced.

Hi I was wondering if you can use something in place of the pinapples?
user Kathy Harrell littlekitty - Nov 4, 2012
Maybe you could increase the amt. of bananas and add a extra egg...I have always used the pineapple .
