Pineapple Infused Sunshine Favorite Best Ever Cake
You know you’ve made your guests the best dessert when they can’t stop praising it. Simple dessert recipes like this Pineapple Infused Sunshine Favorite Best Ever Cake recipe has just seven ingredients that makes the cake taste out-of-the-ordinary. The exotic flavours of pineapple together with a creamy layer of vanilla pudding and whipped cream make an excellent medley with a light and fluffy texture to it. You’ll notice how uncomplicated and easy this recipe is to prepare. This recipe uses a readymade yellow cake mix to keep things simple but if you have a personal favorite cake recipe of your own then go ahead and use it. You can also choose a white cake mix or even chocolate cake mix for a change of flavors. A healthier option in the place of a regular cake mix cake would be to substitute it either with store-bought gluten-free cake mix or sugar-free angel food cake. When you’re done setting the layers together, let it sit in the fridge for several hours so that it sets well completely and the flavors get even better the next day. You can serve it with mixed berries or just eat it on its own. For an extra kick of flavors, you also add a hint of Malibu coconut rum or any spiced rum to it.
A healthier option for ‘Cool Whip’ in this recipe is to use heavy whipping cream with organic sugar and beat them together on a high setting until thick peaks of cream form. For extra firmness, add a tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding when you’re whipping the cream. Adding instant vanilla pudding prevents the watery texture in the whipping cream making it firm which is something you want in this recipe. You can even use condensed milk with organic whipping cream or try beating cream cheese together with sugar. Pineapple and coconut make an excellent combination so you could also add coconut cream or even coconut ice cream. The possibilities are endless!
Pineapple is such an excellent fruit to incorporate into dessert recipes because of its wonderful sweetness that is succulent with natural sugars and full of tropical flavor. Some brands of canned pineapple may have about 1 1/4 cup puree. However, this recipe calls for 16 ounces or 2 cups of crushed pineapple so you may have to measure the can for precision to avoid any runny texture or baking accidents in this recipe. Apart from the taste, there is a right amount of nutrition present in this recipe that comes from the goodness of pineapple. Pineapple is a tropical fruit that originated in South America. The nutritional value of pineapple mainly comes from the enzymes present in it that are highly anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and aid digestion. Other essential pineapple nutrients are vitamin C and A. For the best quality of pineapples, always look for Costa Rica- or Hawaii-grown ones. Did you know besides adding pineapples to fruit salads and tropical drinks they are also used in making wine?
