Pineapple Cake

Yesterday was such a busy busy day until supper was very simple. BBQ shredded chicken sandwiches and chips.Errands, shopping, lunch with my 20 year old son, minor kitchen cleaning and cooking supper as well. However, I did find time to bake a cake. There is always time for cake, right?

This is a simple recipe and really good. I have done this before but that was before my blogging days!

Hope you enjoy this one!

Pineapple Cake

1 can crushed pineapple, 20 oz drained and juice reserved
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened, unsalted
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans or other nut
3/4 cup shredded coconut or flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9 pan. Drain pineapple and reserve juice.
In a medium bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
In a large bowl beat butter for 30 seconds on high speed. Add sugar and beat until fluffy, add eggs and beat until smooth. Now alternate flour and pineapple juice , beat on low until blended well. Now fold in pineapple. Spread batter in the baking pan.
In a small bowl mix brown sugar, pecans and coconut. Sprinkle over the batter. Bake for 35 minutes. serve warm

Now I have also omitted the nuts this time and used dried cranberries. Very tasty as well.
