Pineapple Crumb Cake

Jo Dee Recipe

By Jo Dee TiredMom

My son requested a pineapple cake for his birthday and with a sick younger child in the house I had to use what I had on hand (or risk sending the husband to the store with a list :-). While I love to bake from scratch, I also love the ease and versatility of boxed cake mixes.

In a large bowl, add cake mix, pineapple with juices (minus the 4 tsps reserved), eggs, oil and water. Blend on low speed until moist, then beat on medium speed for two minutes.

    You are very welcome! I hope you enjoy it. I always go down the baking aisle when I grocery shop even if I don't need anything. If I see a good sale price on something I try to pick it up. I never know when the urge to bake will come on!
