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.

 

Ingredients

2 cups of flour

2 cups of sugar

2 eggs

2 Tbl baking soda

2 tsp vanilla

1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple in its own juice

1 (8 oz) bag of pecans

 

Directions

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.

 

Frosting:

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.
