PINEAPPLE JUICE CAKE

PINEAPPLE JUICE CAKE

I knew how much we loved the Orange Juice Cake that I shared a few weeks back, but had no idea y’all were going to love it as much as you do. Mom’s been making that thing for years and I’ve just always enjoyed it so much, but the comments and emails I’ve gotten prove y’all are just as crazy about it!

One of the comments that I got was from Cheryl Griffis. She asked if I had ever swapped the orange juice out for pineapple juice. “GENIUS,” I thought. So I got in the kitchen and set out to do just that.

I made a few tweaks to capitalize on all that delicious pineapple flavor and boy did it turn out amazing!! I think this one might even edge out the orange juice version, but I’ve always been a huge pineapple fan.

The super moist cake is infused with pineapple flavor in the batter and the butter-pineapple glaze that it gets soaked in amps that pineapple flavor up even more!

I took these photos and may have eaten 2 slices… okay, 3. If you’re a fan of the orange juice version and love pineapple, I bet you’re going to devours this. Seriously. Y’all enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Pineapple Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. Prepare Batter: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Alternate Mixing: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the pineapple juice, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  5. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Prepare Pineapple Glaze: While the cake is baking, prepare the pineapple glaze. In a small saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, pineapple juice, and unsalted butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  7. Glaze Cake: Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and immediately poke holes all over the surface using a fork or toothpick. Pour the warm pineapple glaze evenly over the hot cake, allowing it to soak in.
  8. Cool and Serve: Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Once cooled, slice and serve the Pineapple Juice Cake. Enjoy!
