The Easiest One Bowl Pineapple Cake
This is the Easiest One Bowl Pineapple Cake recipe that tastes luscious with the pineapple goodness in each bite. Even though the recipe doesn’t call for any oil or butter, the cake still comes out so moist and dense. The frosting for this cake is made with cream cheese so that its tangy flavor compliments the taste of pineapple even more. Unlike most cake recipes, the frosting for this cake needs to put on while the cake is still warm so that it seeps into the cake to let all the flavors come together. What’s fun about eating this cake are the little chunks of crushed pineapple that you get with each bite. The little bits of chopped pecans also make a delicious addition to the recipe. Not to mention how much it adds to the dense texture of this cake. If you want, you can also add coconut run to this cake to add that liquor flavor or even rum extract will work great. One bowl cake recipes are not fussy and hardly leave a mess. They’re the best option to fall back on those days when you don’t want to do much in the kitchen.
Since the cake gets moister as it sits it tastes even better after a day or two. Make sure you make this cake in advance, so everyone gets to enjoy the true flavors. If you have pineapple at home, you can pulse the fruit slices in a food processor to make it look like the canned crushed pineapple. Don’t throw away the juice rather use it in the cake batter to help he flavors come out even more. Some important tips to keep in mind while making the frosting for this recipe are to avoid overbeating the cream cheese. Once the cream cheese reaches a smooth consistency, do not beat it any further to prevent it from turning runny. To make this recipe a bit wholesomer and cut down the calories, you can you can replace the regular cream cheese with low-fat cream cheese like the Neufchatel cheese. You can use Stevia, cane sugar or honey in the place of refined sugar for the frosting. Other options for cream cheese are Greek yogurt. If you find that Greek yogurt is a bit too thin for the frosting, you can combine half and half of cream cheese and Greek yogurt to make the frosting hold together. The possibilities for creating a healthier version of this recipe are limitless!
