Celebration Cake

013aa This cake is one of those cakes that you make for all occasions.  It is perfect for so many occasions, as it is simple in having the basic ingredients, nothing fancy, yet just the right amount of certain things makes it so delicious and rich in taste that it is also great for the most special of celebrations.  That is why I call it my Celebration Cake.  It is a cake to celebrate life really.  All our special moments that we acknowledge by being together with loved ones and friends, celebrating our good times, our accomplishments with delicious food and drink. 020aa This cake came about by accident really.  I was looking for a cake recipe one Saturday afternoon.  Something I could make with the can of pineapples I had left over from Christmas.  My oldest son was coming over to spend the weekend and I wanted to have something sweet for the boys to enjoy all weekend.  I knew I did not have a lot to work with, but then sometimes simple is better.   This recipe was inspired by two recipes actually, one I love that has bananas (which I did not have at the time) and one that I like from one of my Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks, but with cinnamon.  Anyway, the result is absolutely wonderfully delicious!  If you like pineapple and cream cheese than you will love this cake! Moist and full of flavor; this cake is perfect for our Fiesta Friday, one year anniversary.  Woohoo!  It’s party time!  So come on, let’s go enjoy some great food and great company.
