Hawaiian Wedding Cake with Whipped Cream-Cream Cheese Frosting

This cake is easy and delicious! It is perfect for when you have guests or just to have with a cup of tea. I grew up in a house that always had a fresh cake, brownies, or cookies in case we had company – I find myself doing the same! However, this cake is very popular and rarely lasts long once it is discovered by the kids and their friends!


1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice (do not drain)
1 cup finely chopped (or crushed) walnuts
3/4 cup flaked coconut


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease well a 9 x 13 rectangular pan or a 9″ round pan.

Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Then mix in the eggs, vanilla, crushed pineapple with all of the juice, and coconut.

Bake for about 35 – 40 minutes at 350 degrees (or until toothpick in the center comes out clean).

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (room temperature for easier blending)
1/2 cup butter – softened
1 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth.

Spread over cooled cake and top with toasted coconut if desired!
