Pineapple Sunshine Cake

Products Used



  • 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Pineapple Whipped Cream Frosting

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 cup Dixie Crystals Confectioners Powdered Sugar
  • 1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple, drained well

Garnish (optional)

  • Fresh pineapple wedges
