1 1/2 cups
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained
unsweetened pineapple juice
1 (3.5 ounce) package
1 (16 ounce) package
graham crackers, crushed
This cake is moist and delicious. I topped it with a homemade coconut cream cheese frosting, (1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, 1 stick butter, 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 tsp coconut extract.) Then I topped it with flaked coconut and refrigerated it for 2 hours to firm up the frosting.
Everybody at my office party loved it and I recevied no less than 6 requests for the recipe.
I had high hopes for this recipe, really I did. I was a little bit worried because of the lack of flour, but because of all the other positive reviews, I thought I would give it a try. It smelled heavenly in the oven, but about a half hour before it was supposed to be done, it smelled burnt. When I looked, smoke was pouring out of the oven! I pulled it out, and even though it still seemed too moist, I tried to turn it over onto a serving dish. What I ended up with was a huge... towering... blob. The outside looked like burnt jello, greasy glisten and all. I have to admit, I didn't want the cake to be a total waste of good ingredients, so I picked out a relatively safe looking portion from the inside. It tasted only average, nothing special. After it sat for a while the tast improved, but I will not be making this again.
I had 12 oz of graham crackers I needed to use up so I scaled the recipe to three fourths and baked it in a 13x9 inch pan. It was done in 30 minutes. The cake didn't rise much, but it was moist, tender, and has a uniquely delicious taste from the graham crackers. It makes a great sheet cake and goes well with a whipped cream cheese or whipped cream frosting.
I baked this cake in three 8 inch pans and iced it with cream cheese icing and it was wonderful.Everyone who tried it loved it.
It has a delisious smell plus, it tastes delisious. I topped it with a cream cheese topping. I came out awsosome. Very cool recipe.
Fairly easy to make. Very rich and tasty.
I BAKED THIS CAKE FOR A DINNER AT WORK. WE HAVE
A VARIETY TYPE OF EMPOLYEES; SOME ARE EVEN HARD TO PLEASE. HOWEVER, IT WAS A HIT AND NOT A PIECE OF IT WAS LEFT OVER! THANKS! THE GRAHAM CRACKERS
AND NO FLOUR SURPRIZED US.
My husband gave this a 10! Delicious! Followed the review by STEVECHIN for the coconut cream cheese icing. Loved that this is something different from the norm. Thanks!
