Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • large can crushed pineapple (I used 15¼ ounce)
  • For the Sauce:
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cups sugar
Instructions
  1. Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper and spray with non-sticking cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix the eggs, sugar, baking soda, flour and salt together. Add in the crushed pineapple but do NOT drain the pineapple juice. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake at 325 for 40-45min or until the top turns golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Allow the cake to cool, then poke holes all over the top with a fork.
  5. Make the sauce:
  6. Bring to a boil the sugar, cream, butter. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
  7. Pour the sauce over entire cake. Allow the sauce to soak in by placing in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. I like to serve the cake chilled, but can be served at room temperature. Garnish with whipped cream, mint and pineapple wedges, if desired.
