Oma's Pineapple Cake Recipe ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

❤️ Try this German pineapple cake when you're in a hurry. Quick and easy to make, and, most importantly, it's delicious!

My pineapple cake recipe is one of those easy German recipes that is so quick to make. Basically it all goes into one bowl, stir, bake, and enjoy. 

With a sprinkle of coconut after it's baked, it's a southern twist that finishes it deliciously. Your Oma would be proud of you!

Not only is this one fast and easy to make, but it's absolutely wunderbar! Serve it sprinkled with coconut and whipped cream on the side. This is Ananaskuchen at its best!

German desserts don't need to always be filled with cream. This easy fruity cake is an example of one that's a bit on the lighter side. However, a dollop of whipped cream would be wonderful served on the side. 

Or, how about some pineapple ice cream? Now, that would be heavenly!


Oma says:

If you're looking for pineapple desserts, try this one.

If you wish, you can make this in a 9" x 9" pan. Cut into squares and serve this sprinkled with coconut shreds.

A southern twist to a German classic.
