Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 - 9" X 13" Pan brushed well with Pan Release Mix. (equal parts of Crisco, Vegetable Oil and Flour) I start with
1 C of each mixed well and refrigerated in a jar. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.
2 C Sugar
2 C Flour
20 oz. can crushed Pineapple, including liquid
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 cup chopped Pecans
Place all ingredients in a large Mixing Bowl and stir to combine well.
Pour into the pan and bake for 45 minutes.
Prepare the Frosting while the Cake is baking.
2 C Confectioner's Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
½ C Butter, softened
Cream ingredients together and set aside. When cake is removed from the oven, poke holes in it with a fork. Spread frosting over cake while the cake is still warm.
Serve when the cake has cooled and frosting has set.
Peace in the Kitchen!
