I’m so excited to share my latest baking creation with you all – a delicious Pineapple Pecan Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting! This cake has been on my baking bucket list for a while, and I’m so proud of how it turned out.

The cake itself is made with a combination of butter and vegetable oil, giving it a wonderfully moist texture. I also added some crushed pineapple to the batter for a bit of tropical flavor – you can really taste it in the finished cake. I baked the cake in two layers and then filled the center with some more crushed pineapple. To finish it off, I topped it with a delicious pecan crumble.

When it came time to make the frosting, I decided to go with a classic cream cheese frosting. I used a combination of cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar to create a creamy and smooth texture. To give it a bit of a kick, I also added a dash of freshly grated nutmeg.

Once the frosting was ready, I spread it over the top of the cake, making sure to coat each layer evenly. To finish it off, I scattered some more of the pecan crumble over the top.

I’m so pleased with how this Pineapple Pecan Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting turned out. It has a nice balance of sweet and tart flavors, and the cream cheese frosting is the perfect finishing touch. I have to say, this is one of my favorite cakes I’ve ever made!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below.
