This is a lovely one layer pineapple cake. And if you like frosting, we have a frosting version too! It’s one of those quick and easy cake recipes that will be your go-to dessert for all occasions. This pineapple cake is moist and with the perfect balance of fragrant spices and pineapple flavor. If you are a frosting lover, you can add any frosting you like, including chocolate frosting, buttercream frosting or your favorite cream cheese frosting recipe.
This is a great easy cake for year round, especially if you love pineapple flavor. The tiny bits and chunks of pineapple add great text and flavor to every bite. That’s why even people who don’t think they like pineapple, end up loving this cake and gobble up more than one piece for themselves.
The Pineapple Cake is so delicious. Watch and drool:
This cake isn’t too sweet, so it’s a great all around dessert for all taste buds. If you want it sweeter, you can always add more sugar. But if you go the frosting route, we personally wouldn’t make it any sweeter. With the sweetness of frostings added, you’ll find that it’s a great balance between sweet and tender cake. Because it’s not too sweet, it’s a great morning cake or holiday cake to have along with your coffee. In fact, it’s absolutely wonderful with coffee and one of our favorite morning pastry cakes when we have friends over.
The flavor is easily adaptable as well. Just add more of your favorite fragrant spices to amp up the flavor of each bite.
We haven’t tried it yet, but are thinking these make great muffins as well!

Hope you all enjoy and try this awesome dessert because it’s always the “surprise hit” at a party. Thanks for joining us on our cake obsession.
