Pineapple Cake

I made this recipe with a twist - I used a jar of my zucchini "mock pineapple".

The Pineapple Cake ~ first time I've ever baked in a cast iron frypan ...
  1. I oiled and heated up my frypan in a 375 oven
  2. cream together: 1/2 c butter and 1 c sugar
  3. add 3 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4tsp vanilla extract
  4. stir in 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple (I used a jar of my zucchini "mock pineapple" preserves)
  5. add 4 c soft bread cubes (about 5 slices)
  6. Bake for 45 minutes
  7. Let cool and dish out
  8. Put remainder in another container and wash out the frypan (which is a breeze with a seasoned cast iron pan)

The mix

In the oven

Out of the oven

The Verdict
  • Rick: "that was very VERY nice. Like bread pudding with pineapple."
  • Me: I put WAY to much on my plateā€¦ oh I ate too much!!

NOTE: the "mock pineapple" is shredded zucchini preserved in pineapple juice mixture.

  • do you use cast iron in the oven?
  • have a favourite recipe?
  • have you used "mock pineapple"?
