Elvis Presley cake is delicious!

Elvis Presley cake is so easy to make and this cake is wonderful for any gathering or occasion.  The first time I made this cake my family went crazy about it and wanted it all the time.  It would be wonderful for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, Easter or just anytime you want a delicious dessert everyone will go for.  The original cake recipe calls for a white cake mix but I use a pineapple cake mix when I make mine.  I am sure there was probably not a pineapple cake mix around back when Elvis had his mother make it for him.  You could use a white cake mix, a yellow cake mix or pineapple cake mix.  This cake is very versatile and has such a refreshing taste.  Don’t expect to bring any home if you take it somewhere.

Elvis Presley cake has quickly become one of our favorite cakes.

1 (15.25 ounce Duncan Hines Signature Pineapple Supreme Moist Cake Mix (can use white or yellow)

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple with 100% pineapple juice (Do not drain)

1 cup white granulated sugar

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups powdered sugar

1 cup chopped pecans

Prepare cake mix according to package directions and bake in a 9 x 13 baking pan.  Once cooked, remove cake from oven and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes while you heat the crushed pineapple along with the juice and the sugar on top of the stove just until sugar is melted.  I bring mine to a slow boil and then remove from stove.  Punch holes in the cake with a fork and spread the pineapple over the cake along with the juice.  Using a mixer combine butter, cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar to make frosting.  Very gently spread over entire cake.  It doesn’t matter if some of the pineapple shows through the frosting. Sprinkle on chopped pecans. Makes 1 cake.  Enjoy!
