  • Spread pecans onto a baking sheet; spray pecans with cooking spray.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pecans are fragrant and toasted, about 5 minutes.

  • Whisk flour, white sugar, and baking soda together in a bowl. Stir pineapple and its juice and eggs into flour mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in toasted pecans. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

  • Beat confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer until icing is smooth. Frost the cooled cake using all the icing.

Cook's Note:

You could also add pineapples on top cake after it is topped with icing!

This is a good cake but there's another recipe on this site that I prefer for pineapple and pecans. Two cups of sugar for the cake seemed excessive to me so I cut it to one and that was more than enough sweetness for us. I checked the cake at 30 minutes it was already very brown and slightly overcooked so watch your time. Although the cream cheese frosting is tasty the one thing that I didn't like is that it just never really set or hardened at all stayed very gooey. Read More

The cake was super bland. I had a feeling it would be so I added about 2 tbsp butter and 1/4 c brown sugar to the pecans to make a caramel like coating on the nuts then sprinkled them on top of the cake and half mixed them in before baking. The texture was OK nice an dense like a carrot cake. Add cinnamon and vanilla and I think it would be good. I also added an extra 4 oz cream cheese and cup of pwdr sugar to the frosting. I'm glad I did the extra cream cheese frosting made up for the bland cake! Read More
