I Baked A Cake!
I've been baking cakes because my hubby likes it. Since we have lots of pecans, I thought of baking a Pineapple Pecan Cake for our lunch today. It's my first time to bake this kind of cake. We had James with us this lunch and when we ate our dessert, that's the cake of course, to my surprise, the cake taste so good. My hubby and James said it's really a good and yummy cake. I told them I would definitely bake this kind of cake again. The frosting taste so good too. I think it's a lot better than those bought from the stores. If you want a good-tasting cake, here's the recipe.
Pineapple Pecan Cake
2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 cop chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a mixing bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients; mix well. Stir in chopped pecans. Pour unto an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2 in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely. In a mixing bowl, combine all frosting ingredients, beat until smooth. Frost cake.
