This cake came about last night, as I had leftover pineapple juice from other recipes I wanted to use...so I used it in this cake... I love orange and pineapples, so how could I go wrong?...the orange zest gives a wonderful flavor...it's so moist and delicious...this cake would also be great with an orange frosting, instead of the glaze..

Enjoy!

How to Make Pineapple Orange Cake W/ Pineapple Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Spray a 9 cup Bundt cake pan with non stick cooking spray. Sprinkle pecans evenly in the bottom of cake pan. Set aside.

    Place butter, sugar and pineapple juice in a medium saucepan. ( I added a pinch of orange zest I had left) Bring to a boil and continue boiling for at least 3 minutes. If you want a thicker glaze, boil a few minutes longer.
  6. When cake is finished baking, pour glaze over the cake and let cool completely before removing from pan.

    After cooled, remove cake to serving platter and serve...enjoy!
