How to Make Pineapple Meringue Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Cake:
    Cream shortening; add the sugar and cream this well; then add the egg yolks.
    Sift dry ingredients together, then add alternately with a mixture of the milk and lemon extract. Pour this blended cake batter in 2 greased layer cake pans.(I cut circles of parchment paper in bottom of pans and then spray the paper before pouring in batter).
    ---
    Topping:
    Beat the egg whites and salt until stiff. Add sugar and lemon extract. Fold in the nuts. Pour this over the unbaked layers and bake at 350^ for 30 minutes. Cool well.
    ---
    Pineapple Filling:
    Fold dry pudding mix and crushed pineapple with the juice into the Cool Whip. Spread between layers and outside of cake, but not the top- unless you want to,of course.
