Judi's Pineapple Cake

On my birthday this year, my friend Judi sent me an apron. I was so touched when I unwrapped it and noticed that she had included a hand-written recipe card, tucked in the apron pocket just like my mom used to do. {If you missed yesterday's post, you can read it by clicking here.}

I couldn't wait to try Judi's recipe, and let me tell you, this one's a keeper! I baked it to take to our friend's house last weekend and it was a big hit. Then I took the rest of it to work the next day where it was gobbled up and the recipe was requested.

This is a moist and dense cake that's very easy to throw together. Wow - you've gotta' try this cake!

Judi's Pineapple Cake

Mix the following together in a large bowl:
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups sugar
2-1/4 cups flour
1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Bake in an ungreased 13 x 9" pan at 350° 30-40 minutes (my oven took 30 minutes).
For the frosting, combine:
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
1/4 cup oil (I used butter)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

Frost cake while still hot, and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Yum, yum, YUM!!!

It looks lovely and moist. I'm thinking it's similar to carrot cake in texture?

It sounds delicious. I'll have to come up with a different icing (unless I can find lactose free cream cheese) but definitely trying it.
