Directions Step-By-Step

1
For the Pineapple Cake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking oil.

Mix the flour and the sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs, vanilla and the can of undrained crushed pineapple and mix until well blended with electric mixer on medium speed.
3
Pour the pineapple mixture into the prepared 9 x 13 pan and bake in the preheated 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes until the cake is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean. Be very careful not to overbake.
