Preachers Cake

Category: Cakes, Christmas, Kids

 Ingredients List

  • 2 eggs (3.6 oz)
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar (8.3 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla (or rum/rum extract if you like)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (I used walnut oil)
  • 20 oz crushed pineapple including the juice, if you like (about 2 ¾ cups, I used fresh but use canned if you prefer)
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans (2 oz), medium ground
  • 2 cups flour (10 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons dessicated coconut **optional
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 8 oz butter, softened
  • 12 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla


In a medium sized bowl add (all ingredients) eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil and crushed pineapple. Sift the flour, salt and baking soda and add that into the bowl and mix well. Lastly add the walnuts and the coconut and mix until well incorporated. Grease and line your 8”x8” square pan, pour in the batter and bake at 350°F for about 30-40 minutes until the cake is golden brown on top and springs back when touched in the center. Using a tester will not work here, because the cake is very moist and make appear under cooked. Allow the cake to cool completely, then invert onto your serving dish and either serve it plain dusted with a little powdered sugar or top it with the cream cheese frosting. You can also bake this in an oven proof corning ware dish (pyrex) and serve it directly out of the dish without the need for a separate platter.
Cream Cheese Frosting
Add the cream cheese to the bowl of your stand mixer and using the paddle attachment begin creaming it, then slowly add the softened butter until it has all been incorporated. Sift the powdered sugar and add a little at a time until it has all been incorporated. Lastly, add the vanilla and taste to see if it is sweet enough for you.
