Ingredients

  • For the Cake:

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pineapple juice (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons pineapple juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan or a bundt pan.
  1. Mix Dry Ingredients:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  1. Cream Butter and Sugar:
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  1. Add Eggs and Vanilla:
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  1. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the pineapple juice, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  • Fold in the crushed pineapple.
  1. Bake the Cake:
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • If using a bundt pan, baking time may vary; check for doneness after 45-50 minutes.
  1. Prepare the Glaze:
  • While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and pineapple juice in a small bowl until smooth.
  1. Glaze the Cake:
  • Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  • If using a bundt pan, invert the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While the cake is still warm, drizzle the glaze over the top, allowing it to soak in.
  1. Serve:
  • Allow the cake to cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy your Pineapple Juice Cake with a hint of tropical delight!

Tips:

  • For extra pineapple flavor, you can add a bit of pineapple extract to the batter.
  • If you prefer a richer glaze, use melted butter instead of pineapple juice in the glaze mixture.
  • Serve with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra treat.
