Total Time:
1 hr 5 min
15 min
50 min

8 servings

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple slices- drained, juice reserved
  • 1 (16-ounce) box pound cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (6-ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  • Remove 3 pineapple slices from the can and reserve the juice and set aside. Chop remaining pineapple slices into small pieces and set aside.

  • In a large bowl combine the cake mix, eggs, and 1 can of pineapple juice. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. Stir in the chopped pineapple and combine well. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick, inserted into the center of the cake, comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove and cool completely.

  • In a small pot over medium heat combine the reserved pineapple juice and 1/4 cup of water. Add the brown sugar and butter and bring to a simmer. Add the remaining 3 pineapple rings and saute for 4 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat. Reserve.

  • To serve, remove the pound cake from the pan and transfer it to a serving plate. Arrange pineapple rings on top and secure with toothpicks, if necessary. Pour the sauce over the cake and serve.

Pound cake is a lil heavy and the sauce does not come out as thick/syrup-y as I would have liked but the flavor is AMAZING!!! Made it for my boyfriend who loved it (he's a huge pineapple person and I loved it too (I hate pineapples! haha. Try it : item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is an awesome dessert. I have made it multiple times and it is best right out of the oven served warm with vanilla bean ice cream. Every time I make it it doesn't las longt. It is very sweet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I will definitely be making this again. My family devoured it. Next time I might try crushed pineapple squeezed between two pieces of paper towel instead of cutting up pineapple slices for more of an "all over" pineapple taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This pound cake is one I will definitely be making again. It turned out great, didn't crumble, and was very moist. I had to cook it a little longer than the recipe called for, but I know that is just the difference in oven temps and will adjust accordingly next time I bake it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutely loved this recipe used fresh pineapple ( from Hawaii ) instead of canned didn't use the sauce it doesn't need it already moist enough item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a Sara Lee Frozen pound cake because that was all that I had. I also got the water and brown sugar measurements mixed up, using more water than I was supposed to. Guess what? This recipe is so forgiving. I used more brown sugar and the recipe turned out great! Very easy to make, but would be better to make your own pound cake, instead of frozen. Good luck. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family the other night. It smelled fantastic, but when I tried to cut the cake, after it cooled off completely, it pretty much just crumbled all over the place..The flavor was delicious, though! It was a little easier to cut the next day, but not much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
did this this recipe after the show the next day now is frequently asked for in my family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family and friends really enjoy this cake. I forgot the can of pineapple juice so I added pineapple extract to the cake mix. Other wise I followed the recipe. Once I got a last minute call from church because they needed a dessert. I went to the market and bought a pre-made pound cake, then made the sauce as directed and decorated it.Great for spur of the moment. Thank you for your great food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First, recipe missing under 7/19/09 "View Recipes," but can be acessed under "Other Recipes from This Episode." Second, I thought I saw Sandra have 2 6-oz. cans of pineapple juice in her hands when she was at the sink, instead of 1 as called for in recipe. Hence, I'm reluctant to try this delicious sounding recipe until I have clarification. item not reviewed by moderator and published
