This cake isn’t just a treat; it’s an experience. With its irresistibly moist crumb and vibrant pineapple flavor, it’s the kind of dessert that beckons you for just one more slice.

What makes this cake a standout is its simplicity and the explosive flavor it packs. The natural juiciness of pineapple permeates every bite, making it a perfect dessert for any occasion, be it a cozy family dinner or a festive gathering. The process is straightforward, and the results are consistently delightful, making it a go-to recipe for anyone who loves to bake but appreciates ease and reliability.

Now, let’s dive into the heart of this tropical delight with the recipe:


For The Cake

  • 1 can of pineapple (undrained)
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups Sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 tsp Baking soda

For the Icing

  • 8 oz. Cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 Stick of butter (softened)
  • 2 cups Powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Milk


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by setting your oven to 350 degrees. This ensures a warm, welcoming environment for your cake to rise and bake to perfection.
  2. Mix the Magic: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the cake ingredients. The undrained pineapple not only infuses the cake with its luscious flavor but also contributes to the moist, tender crumb that makes this cake so special.
  3. Bake to Perfection: Pour the batter into a well-greased 9×13 inch baking dish. The size of the dish allows the cake to bake evenly, ensuring every piece is as perfect as the next. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cake is beautifully browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool and Ice: Let the cake cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. This rest period allows the flavors to meld and the cake to settle, ensuring it holds together when iced. While the cake cools, blend the icing ingredients until smooth and creamy. This rich, velvety icing is the perfect complement to the light, fruity cake.
  5. Finishing Touches: Once the cake has cooled slightly, spread the icing over the warm cake. The warmth of the cake helps the icing slightly melt, creating an irresistibly gooey layer.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Allow the iced cake to cool completely before serving. This waiting period is perhaps the hardest part, as the tantalizing aroma fills your kitchen, but patience is rewarded with the perfect slice of moist, pineapple-infused cake.

This Moist Pineapple Cake is more than just a dessert; it’s a celebration of simple ingredients coming together to create something extraordinary. Whether you’re a seasoned baker or new to the kitchen, this recipe is sure to impress and delight. Enjoy the process, relish the flavors, and share the joy with every slice.
