No Fuss Pineapple Bundt Cake
Have you ever made a truly no fuss cake? How about one that tastes like the best cake you’ve ever made? Well, I’d like to introduce my recipe for pineapple bundt cake.
There is something about bundt cake, or maybe it’s just cake making in general, that seems so daunting. Perhaps its the sifting of the dry ingredients or the need to use room temperature ingredients… but there seems to be a plethora of ways to ruin your cake out there.
Not here! This goof proof cake is so easy to make, you literally dump all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix. So yes, step one: place all cake ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spoon or hand mixer. Step two: pour the batter into a greased bundt pan and bake for 45 minutes. That’s it!
You’ll know the cake is done when it starts to pull away from the edges of the pan. Now, just let it sit until completely cooled. If you try to remove the cake from the pan too early it may break or tear away from the pan.
Broken cake? No problem. Whenever I take a bundt cake out too early and have leftover bits in the pan, I just improvise. Take those broken pieces and adhere them to the cake, then cover the cake in luscious frosting and toppings. Still delicious and beautiful.
Easy Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
To be a truly delicious cake, you need to come up with an equally delicious frosting. And this Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting is it! So tasty and flavorful, and great for covering up any broken cake pieces.
Just start with the butter and cream cheese in a bowl and mix together on high using a handheld mixer. My favorite is the KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Mixer. Love the matte fog color!
Next, just blend in the powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk, and you’re done! If you want a thinner frosting, feel free to add in more milk to loosen it up. Pour over the cooled cake and garnish with toppings.
How to Toast Coconut Flakes and Pecans
I love to top this cake with toasted coconut flakes and pecans. How, or if you choose to do this is up to you. Toasting brings out the flavor and aroma of nuts and coconut flakes though, and I highly recommend it.
The coconut flakes and pecans can be toasted on a stove top: Place in a dry skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant and lightly browned, about 1 to 2 minutes.
To toast nuts or coconut flakes in the oven, spread out in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Place in a preheated 325 to 350 degree oven and toast until fragrant and lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
