NoOil?NoEggs?NoProblem! Oh So Easy Pineapple Cake
OH SO EASY PINEAPPLE CAKE
I am always trying to come up with an easy way out. So when it comes to making a cake...I LOVE CAKE MIXES!
Tonight I was thinking...I wonder if I could make a Pineapple Cake with just a Pineapple Cake mix and a can of Crushed Pineapple.
Guess what? It worked!
Very light, moist and so good! (If I say so myself!)
My very own recipe!

My family loves pineapple and this was a special treat! While baking, there was a wonderful smell of fresh, warm pineapple ... just wonderful.
Next time, I may cut back on the whipped cream slightly. It was a bit much for me, but you can determine how much you like. The Test Kitchen
