For Cake

  •   In a large bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the vanilla & pineapple juice. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30- 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Loosen the cake from the sides by running a butter knife around the edges of the cake. Let cake rest for 10 minutes.
  • After resting the cake for 10 minutes, run your knife along the edges a few more times so that the cake will be ready to come out of the pan.
  • Invert the cake onto a plate or flat surface such as a cutting board. Make sure whatever you use fits snugly against the pan. Tap & jiggle the pan so the cake comes out nice & pretty & in one piece.
  • Serve as is or with whipped cream. Enjoy!
