Pineapple Bundt Cake with Lemon Drizzle

I made this cake for Kramer’s office yesterday and I really liked it! Normally I don’t get a chance to taste cakes that I make for his office (it’s not very nice to send a cake with a slice taken out of it!), but I met him for lunch that day and got a chance to try this one! The cinnamon really went well with the pineapple and lemon flavor. It was dense, moist, and slightly sweet. This is perfect to have for breakfast or as a light desert. I really liked this because it’s an unexpected treat for winter time. Recipe after the jump!



Round up your ingredients.


Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl and set aside.


Beat the butter and sugar together well until light and fluffy (about 3-5 minutes).


Add the cinnamon and salt, then beat in the eggs then egg whites one by one, combining well. Beat in the lemon extract until batter is fluffy.


Stir in the pineapple.


Spread the batter into your prepared 10 inch bundt pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes at 350 degrees F.


Remove just when golden.


When the cake is cooled, make your lemon drizzle icing by whisking together powdered sugar, milk, and lemon extract.


Make sure it’s thick, but still thin enough to pour over the cake with a spoon.

Cook time: 
Total time: 

 

Ingredients
Bundt Cake
  • 2⅔ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 1 (16 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + ½ teaspoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 10 inch bundt cake pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy (at least 3 minutes, preferably 5 minutes). Add the cinnamon and salt, then beat in the eggs and egg whites one at a time. Then add the lemon extract and beat together until fluffy.
  3. In another bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Slowly, combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Stir in the pineapple. Pour the batter into a greased bundt pan and spread flat.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan (I like to put the bundt pan on top of a wire cooling rack so the air can circulate).
  5. For the glaze, get a small bowl. Sift the powdered sugar into it, then add the milk and lemon extract. If needed, add in small drops of milk ¼ to ½ teaspoon at a time. Drizzle over cake with a spoon or a Ziploc bag with the tip cut off.

    Normally the photos of the drizzle dripping off are my fave but I love the photo of the “top” of the bundt. It’s the 5th one up from the bottom.
    Since I’m in FL I’m thinking I can switch it up and make it more tropical, like using coconut extract inplace of the lemon and adding shredded coconut to the batter. Toasted chopped macadamia nuts would be a yummy addition at the end with the drizzle. How about coconut milk instead of regular in the drizzle? YUM!
    Thanks for sharing the recipe! Can’t wait to give it a try….

    Made this last night it was very good though mine had the dense texture and tight crumb of a pound cake. Don’t know if it was because of my changes or not but everyone enjoyed it! I did though mess up some on the glaze. Mine was too thick so it didn’t “drizzle” down the sides nicely like yours.

    This was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. The smell was too much and I couldn’t even wait for the cake to really cool all the way and it was heaven. I made the lemon glaze too lemony on accident (misread and put in double the lemon extract) so I just made the glaze again without the lemon extract and mixed it so I had double the amount and used it all. So good. So good.
