|A lovely Southern Cake for a Southern Gentleman!|
Lest you think we’ve eaten nothing but cake for a week, this one was made for John’s final birthday celebration with my family. Although I remember my mom making “Seven-minute Frosting” when I was a kid, I’ve never made it myself. Apparently, I didn’t beat it quite long enough because it ran a bit and didn’t quite set up – of course, this didn’t detract from the flavor and my family loved it just the same.
|Whipped Frosting, Yellow Cake, and Pineapple Filling|
This recipe comes from Nancie McDermott’s Southern Cakes which I picked up in Charleston. The cake is a lovely, moist yellow cake that is easy to make and just a great basic. The center of the cake holds a cooked pineapple filling, then the whole lot is draped in Fluffy Pineapple Frosting, and topped with coconut. It’s really wonderful. You can find the recipe here.
