BANANA-PINEAPPLE CAKE

The youth group served us dinner the weekend before Valentimes Day & this cake was one of the desserts. After one bite, I HAD to have the recipe! A wonderful lady named Ellen made it & was happy to share the recipe. And now I'm sharing it with you. :)

Banana-Pineapple Cake
3 C. flour
2 C. sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 t. ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 C. oil
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 C. chopped pecans
2 C. chopped bananas
Cream Cheese Frosting

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add eggs & oil, stir until dry ingredients are moist-do not beat. Stir in vanilla, pineapple, nuts, & bananas. Spoon batter into 3 greased & floured 9 inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until tested done. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pans. Cool completely. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting. Can sprinkle top with another 1/2 c. pecans if you want to.

Cream Cheese Frosting
Cream together 1/2 C. butter, 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, & 1 t. vanilla until light & fluffy. Gradually add 1 lb. box sifted powdered sugar (about 4 cups). Beat well. If too thick, add a little cream or milk.

Oh my. This was GOOOOOOD. And so easy!
