Pineapple Lush Cake
This is a great spring and summer dessert for any reason but especially nice for picnics and BBQ gatherings. It is very similar to a pig picking cake.
Bake three individual layers of yellow cake substituting either pineapple or orange juice for the liquid in the recipe.
Blend 2 cups of heavy cream and 1/2 cup of sugar until you have thick whipped cream.
INGREDIENTS: 2 (20 oz.) cans of crushed pineapple; do not drain. 2 (3.4 oz) package of instant vanilla pudding powder 3 cups of whipped cream (homemade is best - see pre-instructions #2) 3 baked layers of yellow cake 1 cup of blueberries
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Mix cans of crushed pineapple and packages of pudding mix in a medium sized bowl. 2. Gently fold in whipped cream. 3. Place cake layer on a cake dish plate. Spread pineapple lush mixture about an inch thick on top of the cake layer. 4. Place a second layer of cake on the top and spread another inch of pineapple lush on top of that cake layer. 5. Place the third cake layer on top and finish topping with a final layer of pineapple lush. 6. Top with blueberries and put in the refrigerator for about an hour or until ready to serve.
From the picture below you can see I use a deep glass pedestal dish and layer the cake inside the glass dish.
You can see the lovely cake through the dish and it holds the cake up well. It is also easy to slice and spoon out. This turns the cake into a beautiful center piece on any table.
