Strawberry Pineapple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

February 07, 2012
This is one those cakes that I love.  Easy. Quick. Delicious.


I have made these awesome Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes a few bazillion times from Skinny Taste.  So, when, I discovered strawberry cake mix and a can of pineapple in my pantry, I figure, why not give the strawberry a try.

Now, you may be surprised to know, this cake is only 2 ingredients.  Yes, TWO!  Now, if you don't care for strawberry or don't have on hand, just use the original recipe with yellow cake mix and you are good to go.

For the frosting, I made the Cream Cheese Frosting, because, I was sadly, out of marshmallow fluff. But, the  Pineapple Fluff Frosting (listed with the Pineapple Bliss recipe) is another yummy option.

  3. may be a silly question but do you mix boxed cake with ingredients on box as well as the pineapples or do you omit those ingredients?
