Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, softened butter, drained crushed pineapple, chopped pecans, eggs, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. While the cake is baking, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and butter until creamy and smooth.
  6. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture, beating well after each addition, until a thick and smooth frosting is formed.
  7. Once the cake has cooled completely, spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the top.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
