Hawaiian Wedding Cake

Hawaiian Wedding Cake

Hawaiian Wedding Cake combines the perfect balance of soft spongy cake with pineapple filling, topped with a velvety pudding or icing. You can cut back on the sugar if you prefer something more tart, and add some roasted coconut shreds on top aloha!! It's a dessert that is definitely a great treat at any time of the day. Served right out of the oven or chilled and the next day the flavors are absolutely fantastic!! Tropical yumminess!

One of the things I love about baking is enjoying time in the kitchen with loved ones, so when my dear friend Carla came to spend her one week vacation with me, away from her high stress and busy lifestyle she likes to call life, back in New York city, I thought it would be nice to catch up and connect in the kitchen over something sweet! You see, both Carla and I love to cook and bake that is when we have the time for it, so it was perfect. And of course we had some good laughs along the way!

One of the many things we baked that week was the Hawaiian Wedding Cake from a site I found a few months ago its great.

This recipe comes together in a matter of minutes. You literally throw everything in a bowl well after draining the pineapple thoroughly - and mix it with a spatula before pouring it into a greased cake pan. Once it cools, you frost it with a tangy, sweet (but not too sweet) cream cheese frosting or even pudding. If youre like me and like to decorate your baked creations, you can add some toasted shredded coconut on top or go classic and add a few brightly coloured maraschino cherries to each sectioned piece. I decorated with some dried pineapple rings looked really nice!! Anyway, result is a tropical flavored cake thats more dense and moist than most cakes.

We followed this recipe with a few changes rather than using a cake mix or instant pudding, we decided to make everything from scratch. If youre up for that challenge, just go on and find your favorite sponge cake recipe and vanilla pudding recipe and youre good to go. Otherwise, just pick up the boxes and shh, dont worry, we wont tell anyone.

It's a great cake to serve with ice tea in the backyard with close friends on a beautiful Summers day. Each bite will remind you of the tropics and you might just stand up and do a little hoola dancing! Aloha and bon appetit.

Pineapples are the juicy and delicious fruit, that tastes amazing when its eaten fresh, but it can also be cooked, juiced and preserved in different recipes. The flesh and juice of the pineapple is used in cuisines around the world. In many tropical countries in the world, you will find the pineapple prepared, and sold on roadsides as a snack, perfect for warm days when you need something refreshing. The pineapple is sold whole, or in halves with a stick inserted. Whole, cored pineapple slices with a cherry in the middle are a common garnish on baked hams in the West. As a kid my mom used to use pineapple rings on our traditional New Years Eve Ham too! Chunks of pineapple are used in desserts such as fruit salad, as well as in some savory dishes, including pizza toppings for a Hawaiin pizza and a grilled ring on a hamburger. The juice of the pineapple is served as a beverage, and it is also the main ingredient in cocktails such as the pia colada. Upside down pineapple cake is another popular pineapple recipe.
