Easy Pineapple Cake is made from scratch with just a few simple ingredients. The can of crushed pineapple is where most of the liquid for the cake comes from, so you don’t need to add any additional oil. Which makes this cake pretty healthy, right? Ok, so maybe not a health food, but using the pineapple instead of oil does save you a few calories. And the pineapple makes the cake so moist – it’s amazing!

How to make Pineapple Cake

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs for 2-3 minutes. Add pineapple, flour, sugars and baking soda.

Pour into a greased 9X13 pan. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, you can make the frosting. Beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and continue to beat until completely smooth.

Frost the cake while still warm (just make sure to wait about 8-10 minutes after the cake comes out of the oven so it’s not hot enough to completely melt the frosting, just warm enough to soften it so that it spreads easily).

HOW DO YOU SOFTEN CREAM CHEESE?

Cream cheese is easy to soften – you can set it out at room temperature or soften it more quickly in the microwave.

-To soften at room temperature more quickly, just set the cream cheese on a plate and cut into smaller pieces. The cream cheese should reach room temperature in about 15-20 minutes with this method.

-To soften the cream cheese in the microwave, remove the foil packaging and set the cream cheese in a small bowl or on a plate. Microwave for about 10-15 seconds. If the cream cheese is still cold and hard, continue to microwave for about 5 seconds at a time until the cream cheese is soft throughout. Just make sure not to microwave it too long or it will start to melt!

How to make asparagus in the ovenHow to make Asparagus in the oven

To make this easy asparagus recipe start by preparing your asparagus. When you buy asparagus it usually comes in one big bunch. Wash the asparagus spears well to remove any excess dirt.

 

Place the asparagus onto a cutting board and remove the woody bottom from each of the spears. A simple way to do this is to take one of the asparagus spears and bend it from the bottom while holding onto the top. The asparagus should snap near the bottom.

Line the spear that you have snapped next to the other spears and slice at the same length. If you would like, you can snap each spear individually.

 

Creamy Baked Asparagus recipeNext, prepare the cream sauce by combining the cream, half of the butter, half of the parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Place the asparagus in a baking dish and pour the cream sauce over the top. You want it to cover the asparagus.

Put the creamy asparagus in the oven at 375º F and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the asparagus is just tender. The sauce will also thicken in the oven as it bakes.

 

While the asparagus is cooking, combine the remaining butter and parmesan cheese with the bread crumbs and mix until they are well combined and the bread crumbs are a little moistened by the melted butter.

Remove the creamy asparagus from the oven and sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the top. Place the asparagus back in the oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are golden and crisp.

Creamy Baked Asparagus recipeCan I make this Asparagus Recipe ahead?

This creamy baked asparagus recipe is best made just before serving. If you would like to prep the recipe ahead so you can just throw it in the oven right before eating, prepare the asparagus by cleaning and slicing, store in the refrigerator until ready to bake.

Prepare the cream mixture and breadcrumbs just before baking.
