Hawaiian Pineapple Butter Cake – #25. Fail.
It is Father’s Day. And let me say – I found this brilliant cake on Pinterest, or so I thought! I just knew my hubs, my dad and my father-in-law would all love it. Last nite I set out to make it, thinking I had a slam-dunk new favorite in the works.
I could not have been more wrong.
The cake itself was delicious – I know because I had extra batter and made mini bundts of just cake, without the pineapple. The cake was perfect – it could not have turned out better. But, I knew as soon as I popped the full-sized cake out of the pan, I had miscalculated by drastic proportions. There was a pineapple mixture that was supposed to bake up into the cake – and it didn’t. Nope – it was just mushy slop, sitting on top of the cake. It looked terrible and the pineapple mush didn’t even really taste good.
What a disaster. And, what a waste! Oh how I hate to waste such a golden, fluffy and moist cake with a delicious vanilla-pineapple sweet flavor. How could I have gone so wrong?
Well, I’m giving myself huge loads of grace today – and remembering what NOT to do again…
So, what do you do when you need a Father’s Day dessert, and soon? Well – I for one ran to the Wal Mart to get a few things – and I’m making Mississippi Mud for my family. Its a nice, chilled, summertime-chocolatey dessert that I know everyone will love.
I’ll hop back on the bundt cake train next week!
(no photos, guys! believe me – you don’t want to see this mess…)
