Pineapple Cake

Taste the tropical sweetness with this delightful pineapple cake.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup canned crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Pineapple Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup canned crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Take a regular 9-inch round cake pan and grease it with butter or oil. You can also sprinkle a bit of flour over it to prevent sticking.
  2. In a big mixing bowl, beat together the softened butter and granulated sugar until it’s light and fluffy.
  3. Crack in the eggs, one at a time, and mix them in well. Then add the vanilla extract and give it another mix.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until everything is just combined.
  6. Carefully fold in the drained crushed pineapple until it’s evenly mixed throughout the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into your prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.
  8. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. While the cake is baking, you can make the pineapple frosting. Just mix together the softened butter, powdered sugar, drained crushed pineapple, and vanilla extract until it’s nice and smooth.
  10. Once the cake is done baking, let it cool in the pan for around 10 minutes. Then, carefully transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. When the cake has cooled down, spread the pineapple frosting over the top.
  12. Cut yourself a slice and enjoy your homemade pineapple cake with its sweet tropical flavor!

This easy pineapple cake is perfect for any occasion, whether you’re celebrating a birthday or just want a tasty dessert. Give it a try and impress your friends and family with your baking skills!
