What’s Cooking Wednesday? Super Simple Pineapple Cake

“Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.” ~ Proverbs 15:16

For the last few years, my husband Chris and I have hosted a movie night for our church. God placed a dream in our hearts to provide local families with a positive, clean entertainment venue, an alternative to the many ungodly opportunities Satan provides. Fortunately, our preacher jumped on our offer and helped us get the ball rolling for this ministry. Every first Friday of the month, we can be found serving homemade desserts and providing fellowship to whoever walks through the door. After the food and socialization, we settle in to watch an inspiring movie. Last month, we had thirty-nine people join us.

As this is our ministry, we provide the snacks. I try to do four to five different options to accommodate differing palates. You can imagine with close to forty attendees, this can get expensive fast, but today’s recipe has been a real life saver! I won’t take any credit for this one though; all credit belongs to a good friend. Several months after we started our ministry, I was sitting with my friend Denise talking about the desserts I planned to make for an upcoming movie night. She reached over, took my hand and said, “Honey, I’m going to give you the best tip you will ever get.” She proceeded to give me the following recipe with directions for baking.

You will need non-stick spray, a white or yellow cake mix and a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple.

And if you’re wondering about the verse with this recipe, it’s just a reminder because this cake is sooooo good! Don’t eat it all, or you will get sick. LOL :) Enjoy!
