Wanna talk delicious?
I found this easy Pineapple cake recipe on Pinterest and decided to make it for The Feast of St. Nicholas, as one of his titles is patron of bakers.
We don't do the candy in our shoe thing....stinky shoes.
Anyway, to a box mix of angel food cake mix I added a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple. Yes, it did start to bubble! But at first, it didn't look like there would be enough moisture... so I splashed a bit of Malibu Coconut Rum in. When I think pineapple I think Colada...shoot me.
It frothed up nicely and I poured it into a bundt pan. Setting the oven to 350, I baked it 25 minutes and let it cool. It looked like a fallen souffle, like it was ruined. But I inverted it anyway on to a dish and it looked as it should.
Tasting it, my eyes rolled. It has a unique, spongy, yet moist consistency. Good, as is, or I could see it with come cool whip with which to affix some toasted coconut flakes. Yeah, again with the coconut.
So easy, this could be a quick go-to for Sunday refreshment socials after Mass.
Once again, thank you Pinterest and we hoist a forkful to you, St. Nicholas, thanking you for your true example of goodness.
