Yesterday, since I was home in the afternoon, I decided to try a new recipe the I had saved on Pinterest.  It is called an Elvis Presley Cake and it used crushed pineapple which my whole family likes.

Elvis Presley Cake

Ingredients

  • White cake mix
  • 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 8 oz. pkg of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of butter softened
  • 3 cups of powder sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 – 3 cups of crushed pecans

 

Bake the cake as directed on the box, let it cool and poke holes in it.  I used the small round handle of a mixing spoon.

Boil the can of crushed pineapple with the juice and one cup of sugar. Pour over the cake.

In a large bowl mix cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Add vanilla and crushed pecans and mix well. Spread over cake.

This is a very good cake, but it is rich and super sweet.

Bon appetite!

Hello, My name is Linda; I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. Currently, my full time day job is an Intervention Specialist. That is the official title for a special education teacher. My teaching assignments for the past couple of years have been Social Studies, Language Arts, and Art & Music. After the school day has ended I again become a wife and mother. My husband and I have four children, 3 girls and 1 boy. They have blessed us with 12 beautiful grandchildren with number 13 coming any day . We also have 3 great-grandsons and a great-granddaughter coming in June. As you can tell, we love large families. I enjoy sewing, crafting, and photography. You can see my work on my facebook page, Perilin Creations & Photography. Just recently I have started a Twitter and Instagram account. They are not fully being utilized yet but I hope to remedy that in the immediate future. As this blog progresses, I plan on infusing it with inspiration and spiritual encouragement. Just today I ordered the book, Femine Appeal: Seven Virtures of a Godly Wife and Mother by Carolyn Mahaney. It was one of the books listed under 12 Books to Read This Year by Young Homemaker.
