Thumbs up Best-Yet Cake Recipe

My dad and grandpa especially liked this one. I don't know if it's the best yet (no chocolate!), but it was pretty darned good!

Best-Yet Cake

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained

Fork-blend the eggs. Add sugar and blend together by hand. Sift together the flour and baking soda and stir into egg and sugar mixture. Fold in the crushed, undrained pineapple. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Frost immediately upon removal from oven.



Best-Yet Cake Frosting

Ingredients:
8 ounces softened cream cheese
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

With an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, sugar and butter. Add vanilla and blend well. Spread on cake while the cake is still hot. Top with walnuts or pecans.

Sounds kind of like an ambrosia cake except the pineapple goes into tje frosting which is cool-whip and vanilla pudding. Mandrin oranges go into the cake. Yummy stuff.
I like the sound of your icing too. Maybe I'll try that next time.

Hi Chocoholic,
would it be possible to use apples instead of pineapples? Would I have to bake the apples separately first? I love apple cakes and have tried a few different recipes, but have not yet found my favorite.
The best yet cake sounds delicious.
Thank you!
Karin
