My Favorite Birthday Cake

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 can (20oz) crushed pineapple
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix ingredients by hand and pour into 9 x 13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

1 pkg. cream cheese
(do not use fat free cream cheese..your frosting will be very lumpy!)
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

On my birthday I would always pick this cake for my mom to make.
I think I was in elementary school when she got the recipe from a friend.
It is especially good after it has been in the fridge for a couple of hours!

Eric and Brady made me this cake for my birthday yesterday.
Usually they make me a chocolate cake with chocolate icing (because that's
what Brady likes).  But, Brady overheard me telling a friend
 on the phone about the pineapple cake....
and he asked if they could kick my birthday up a notch this year!
The cake was awesome.
I love those two guys so much!

OMG Kerri! That is my absolute favorite cake too!!! I could eat the whole thing in one sitting. I know I've eaten half before and shocked my husband :) I got the recipe from my mother in law years ago. It's soooo moist and delicious. I'm craving it now!

This *might* be tomorrow's dessert! (I think I have all of the ingrediants!) Days trapped in the house= lots and lots of calories!
Happy belated birthday, it sounds like your boys helped make it wonderful!

Pam said...

Happy Birthday Kerri! Sorry I'm late..that cake looks so yummy! What great guys you have in your life!

Kim said...

I came back for an extra piece of cake!

Thanks for your sweet comments. I never know where to answer questions. Anyway, I don't use Photoshop. I have PS Elements but I can't figure it out! Drives me nuts! I need to learn it. I edited those 2 photos in Lightroom. BSD gave it to me for Xmas. MUCH easier to use, but I still only know how to use 1/10th of it.

Oh, and my hair is actually darker. lol! I have curly/wavy hair similar to the Big Ballerina's but I always straighten it b/c it gets really bushy/frizzy. I finally found a shampoo and product that let me bring out some of the natural curl w/out the frizz. I'm really excited about it so thanks for noticing. :)

Kat said...

WOW! That cake looks ridiculously delicious!!! I want some, like, NOW!

Seizing My Day said...

Jess said...

Happy Birthday- that cake looks delish! Thanks for sharing the recipe, and thanks for your kind compliment- made my day.

Lisa said...

I can see why this would be your favorite cake. It sounds so fruity and delicious, especially with that frosting. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog right now called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link your cake up.

Wow! My sister makes the exact same cake! She puts chopped up pecans on top of the frosting. It is so moist and delicious. I would add a little coconut to the inside too. MMMM!
