Pineapple Filling for Cakes (Low Fat)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I have used this many times to fill my cakes, it's a very simple recipe, and makes enough to fill two layers, if you want to fill three layers, I suggest to double the recipe or use a smaller amount in between the layers. It's really a nice change from your regular frosting and gives the cake so much more flavor. If you prefer a sweeter filling, just add in more sugar. You will love this filling!

I made a pineapple cheesecake tonight and had been searching for a pineapple filling to add as another layer. I discovered this recipe, made it exactly as suggested and it turned out just as I had hoped. It was the right sweetness, thickened easily, and took no time at all to put together. I'll definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for posting....
