Pineapple Explosion

Teresa

If you enjoy pineapple, this Pineapple Explosion Cake will knock your socks off. Truly. The cake batter uses only 3 ingredients including a pineapple cake mix and pineapple pie filling. But you get the double whammy with the cream cheese icing. It includes pineapple extract and pineapple tidbits on top (and it’s only 6 ingredients). Yes, you get pineapple 4 delicious ways in this explosion of flavor!

I made a meal the last week of October for a gal in our neighborhood who underwent hip replacement surgery. She had the other hip worked on a couple of years ago, and this one in October. I actually ended up halving the meal and sharing the other half with some other neighbors of ours that used to live across the street. She had helped me tremendously with our garage sale, so I thought I would bless them with a meal also.

I made up Easy Chicken and Yellow Rice, Green Beans, Pear Salad Halves, Marinated Veggie Salad, some homemade bread and this delectable dessert. I think this was the second or third dessert I’ve given to my neighbors with pineapple as the main ingredient. They loved this recipe enough to want to make it for family when visiting them in early November. 🙂

Pineapple Explosion is a dessert that’s perfect to serve crowds since it makes 48 servings! If you’re a pineapple lover, this is exactly the dessert you want on the table for any company or holiday dinner. 🙂
