When Jen wanted a house to pass an inspection while working as a homebuilder’s superintendent in New Mexico, she baked this cake for Willie, the city inspector. He eventually didn’t even look at the houses anymore, just signed the permit and ate his cake.
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
2 Tbl baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple in its own juice
1 (8 oz) bag of pecans
Throw all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix by hand. Batter will appear too runny but it’s not. Heavily grease and lightly flour a 9 x 13 pan; add batter and bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes. While the cake is baking put frosting ingredients out to soften.
1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup of granulated sugar, softened
1 bar of cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
Blend frosting ingredients until smooth and creamy. Let the cake cool before applying the frosting, but leave the frosting at room temperature for an easier application.
