Reviews for Pineapple Sheet Cake
"Shouldn't this cake have oil in the recipe?? Wouldn't it be dry without it."
"Can't print recipe"
"i had high expectations given the great reviews, but this cake turned out so bland that i didn't even bother frosting it as it would just have been a waste of frosting."
"this recipe looks good, does it make a difference if I use pineapple in heavy syrup or pineapple in juice?"
"Have baked this cake many times and everyone loves it. So simple, too."
"I've been making this moist, delicious cake for years. It's one of my favorites, if you have the pineapple on hand, it comes together in a flash. In a glass dish the bottom carmelizes and is super yummy. The creamy dreamy frosting makes it special. Something different and always well received. Leave out the nuts for those nut free, it never lasts long in my house. My original recipe uses a 9 x 13 & bakes at 325' for 40 minutes."
"Yummy and so moist. Anything with cream cheese frosting is big in our house. My MahJonng group loved it. This is a keeper! ??"
"Very tasty cake it make a big at my hubsand party. I will make it agaon"
"A huge church potluck hit!"
"The cake is delicious, but I add 1 cup of coconut"
"super easy hit with everyone"
"Served this at church potluck/ Now others want recipe. Delish!"
"Great Sheet cake to make."
"Made it twice last week. Thanks for the recipe. It is a keeper."
"No oil or butter? Nice."
"I make this in a 13x9 pan and cook as recipe says. Is absolutely wonderful. Have now made several times and is now one of my family favorites."
"Can this be made in 13x9" pan and how long to bake?"
"Fabulous cake! I made a recipe and a half for my larger pan. I had two bananas lying around that were getting soft, so I creamed them and added to the batter, along with some coconut. Turned out like a tropical cake! Some toasted coconut on top added just the right touch. Thanks for sharing this recipe ~ it is definitely one that I'll make again!"
"Made this for our potluck Saturday lunch.. it was a big hit. Not even a crumb for me to take home... Totally decadent"
"Delicious. Will make this cake again!"
"Good and moist."
"Made this recipe for a camping pot luck last summer and got people asking 'who made the pineapple cake-it's awesome!' So I decided to try it again for a 'get together', and had someone remember it from the campout, hoping it was the same one!"
"Next time I, too, will reduce the sugar about 1/4 cup and decrease the volume of icing by about 1/2. Still was moist and very good as is..."
"When I accidentally opened a 20oz can of crushed pineapple instead of chunks, I had to find a way to use it. This was the first recipe I came to that called for 1-20oz can of crushed pineapple. It is delicious and probably won't last too long in this house."
"I have been making this recipe for many, many years now. I use pineapple in its own juice and cut the sugar and cream cheese frosting as 8 0z. makes a lot! I uae about 4 oz. and 1/4 cup butter, and enough powdered sugar to make a good spreading consistancy. I use a 9x13" pan, and bake 35 to 40 min. It looks really brown but is so good and easy. I turn to this recipe when I have to make something in a hurry."
"You do not need oil in this recipe - the juice provides plenty of moisture and do cut the sugar a bit. It is a wonderful cake - also good with coconut icing for coconut lovers. I am making it this afternoon to take to a Sunday Supper!"
"I have made this several times and every time I make it someone asks for the recipe. It is super simple and absolutely delicious! I do not use the full 2 cups of sugar as it is quite sweet. Next time I make it I am going to cut the frosting in half because it made such a lot-too tempting to eat!!Great if you need squares for a crowd! One of the few sheet cake recipes that doesn't sink in the middle when you take it out of the oven. This is so moist that it would be good just sprinkled with icing sugar."
"And to answer the question about shortening, I guess the pineapple takes its place because I followed the recipe exactly, except for the above noted difference in baking time."
"I made this and I beleive the baking time given is incorrect. I only baked mine for about 20 to 25 minutes and it got really brown on top. It is so good!"
"I am wondering if there is shortening or margarine missing in the cake batter in this recipe.Does the crushed pineapple take the place of it?? Thanks"
I "posted" this because when I clicked on "viewing the recipe" I thought I'd never get back to this thread. I have made this recipe many times but I use the pineapple in juice and it turns out very well - less sugar, then.
It is a very good cake.
