Moist Pineapple Cake

In the world of desserts, there exists a cake so moist and so rich in tropical flavors that it can transport you to a sunny beach with every bite. We’re talking about the ever-so-delectable Moist Pineapple Cake. This cake, with its juicy pineapple chunks and creamy frosting, is a perfect blend of sweetness and tang, making it a hit at any gathering or a comforting treat for your family.

What sets this pineapple cake apart is its incredibly moist texture, thanks to the use of undrained pineapple cans in the batter. This not only infuses the cake with a strong pineapple flavor but also ensures that it stays moist and tender. Paired with a smooth, rich cream cheese icing, this cake is a dream for anyone who loves fruity desserts.


For The Cake:

  • 1 can of pineapple, undrained (usually about 20 oz.)
  • 1 cup (128g) All-Purpose Flour
  • 1½ cups (300g) Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 tsp (8g) Baking Soda

For the Icing:

  • 8 oz. (227g) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 Stick (113g) Butter, softened
  • 2 cups (256g) Powdered Sugar
  • 2 tsp (10ml) Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) Milk


  1. Preheat and Prep: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C). While it’s warming up, take a 9×13 inch baking dish and grease it well to ensure your cake doesn’t stick.
  2. Mix the Cake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the undrained pineapple, flour, sugar, eggs, and baking soda. Beat them together until well combined. The undrained pineapple is key here – it’s the secret to the moistness of your cake!
  3. Bake the Cake: Pour your batter into the prepared baking dish. Spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when it’s beautifully browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool the Cake: Patience is a virtue, especially in baking! Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes. This step is crucial for the perfect texture.
  5. Prepare the Icing: While the cake is cooling, mix together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This creamy delight is what brings the whole cake together!
  6. Ice the Cake: Once the cake has cooled slightly, spread the icing over the warm cake. The warmth of the cake will help the icing spread more easily and seep slightly into the cake, making it even more moist and flavorful.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Let the cake cool completely before serving. This wait ensures the flavors meld together perfectly.
