Hi there! It’s Monica here…your MCCN Editor. I’m just dropping by for a quick talk about this awesome recipe.
I’ve been wanting to add this pineapple juice cake recipe on the site for a while because I personally loved making it. I’ve made the cake four times and it’s been a hit each time. The recipe is relatively simple, and if you have kids or grandkids, what a fun way to spend some quality time together!
Now here’s my disclaimer…it’s super sweet. I mean, “How sweet it is!” but OMGoodness it’s going to be a sugar shock for some. I’d venture to say some may have to lay the fork down after two or three bites.
Now for the natural sweet tooth people like me…pace yourself.
The cake has a strong pineapple presence inside and out. The pineapple juice is baked right in, and when the cake is finished, you soak it, and I mean ladle it on thick, with the pineapple juice glaze.
You could gain 5-10 pounds nibbling on this cake. It can’t stay in my house. I’m not trying to dissuade you, I just want you to know what you’re getting yourself into.
Here’s the thing I’ve made it drenched, and I have also drenched it less. One way or the other, it’s supposed to be drenched. Just decide for yourself how far you want to go down that rabbit hole.
I took this cake to my office, frankly because I wasn’t going to eat a whole cake. I sliced it, put it into a container, and left it in the break room for whoever wanted to eat it.
Then something strange happened. I started hearing the commotion.
“This cake is so good.”Office wolker
“Who made this cake?”Another office worker
I must admit, it was a lot of fun to hear more and more people talking about this really delicious and mysterious cake.
I came clean to one of the ladies at my job, and assured her that I wasn’t some super baker. I simply saw an image on Pinterest that made the ultimate greedy girl in me have to investigate. That’s when I found a video by Stacey from Southern Bite, and filed it in my mind as a must-try.
