  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

For the Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. Prepare Pineapple:
    • Drain the crushed pineapple well to remove excess liquid.
  3. Make the Cake Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
    • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
    • Fold in the crushed pineapple and nuts (if using).
  4. Bake:
    • Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Make the Frosting:
    • While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  6. Cool and Frost:
    • Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
    • Once cooled, spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the top of the cake.
  7. Cut and Serve:
    • Cut the cake into bars, and they are ready to be served.
