This is a tropical bundt cake, with pineapple and banana. This is a great cake for summertime, or when you need a lift during a cold winter!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat 2 cups of sugar and oil at the medium speed of an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating just until the yellow disappears. Add the crushed pineapple and vanilla, beating just until blended.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; Stir well. Add to the oil mixture alternately with the mashed banana, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix at low speed just until blended after each addition.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased and floured 12-cup Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from the pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Combine the powdered sugar and orange juice, adjusting the amount of orange juice to get the glaze you want. Stir well. Drizzle the glaze over the cake.

I made this as a slab cake and it worked really well.It was easy to do in the food processor too. I reduced the sugar a little and we all loved it. It made a large, nice, moist cake and I frosted it with a cream cheese style frosting.

Tastes like banana bread! Mine was ready 8 minutes early. Just as easy to make as cake in the box!

Absolutely wonderful cake, this is! After following the recipe right on down, when I got to the glaze I added one thing ~ 2 teaspoons of finely minced orange zest! Other than that, thought, I wouldn't change a thing! Definitely a 5-STAR cake at the very least! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
