Pineapple Pecan Cake

June 12, 2013

I like to bake, for those of you following this blog, you’ve figured this out by now. I don’t know what the deal is, but I have been on a super big baking kick lately and I think my office has certainly appreciated it! I really wanted something with fruit and pecans in it the other day, but struggled with what to do. Peaches are starting to come in, but they are not amazing until around the 4th of July. Blueberries are good right now, but I really like those with cupcakes and I wasn’t feeling cupcakes. Then I got a craving for some pineapple, and that’s how I settled on the Pineapple Pecan Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. I got the idea from the http://www.keyingredient.com and made a few tweaks.
