Granny Cake with Pineapple and Peaches

Granny Cake

Granny Cake is an old fashioned cake made from scratch with canned pineapple and peaches mixed inside the cake.  Topped with a made from scratch coconut frosting, makes this cake irresistible.  Sometimes I’ll mix things up and use a can of pineapple and a big can of tropical mixed fruit.

This is my husband’s favorite cake because it reminds him of a cake his grandma used to make for him when he was a kid.  My son goes crazy for this cake too, I don’t know, it may be a man thing?  One of my daughters loves this cake too.

The cake itself doesn’t contain any oil or butter, so I like to tell myself it’s healthy to eat.

Granny Cake Dump, Mix, and Bake

The cake goes together easily.  I dump all the cake ingredients into my kitchanaid mixer and mix it until its all blended and then pour into a cake pan sprayed with Pam.
