  • 1 20-ounce, can Crushed Pineapple With Juice
  • 1 cup Chopped Toasted Pecans optional
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese Softened
  • 1 stick Butter softened
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, crushed pineapple with juice and chopped pecans(toast ‘em first).
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, and baking soda in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in the egg mixture. Stir gently, just until combined.
  4. Pour into a 9×13 greased baking dish. Bake at 350F for 30 to 35 minutes till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. COOL COMPLETELY.
  5. Combine all frosting ingredients together (cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla) with an electric mixer until smooth. You may need to add a little milk to make it spreadable if your butter wasn’t soft enough.
