EDITOR’S NOTE (June 14, 2021): Edited for clarity. See recipe video on my Facebook fan page.
DISCLAIMER (NOT SPONSORED): I have not been paid to show pictured products on this page. Delighted to share the ingredients I purchased and used to make this delicious recipe.
This recipe calls for 2 cans (20 ounces each) of pineapples in juice (not in heavy syrup). Use one cans of pineapple tidbits and one can of crushed pineapples in juice.
You may also use two cans of tidbits or two cans of crushed pineapples in juice.
Pineapples in heavy syrup are too sweet for this recipe.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or slathered with real whipped cream.
The inspiration for this recipe came to me while whipping up my Pineapple Dump Cake, THE MOST POPULAR recipe on this blog.
I experimented by adding extra lemon juice and used a white cake mix instead of yellow. Perfection!
How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a video tutorial is a great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking. Helps you make sure you have each ingredient and avoid accurately following instructions.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
