Margaret's Swedish Pineapple Cake

"I got this recipe from a co-worker many years ago. It sounds like a lot of steps, but it's very easy to make. The pineapple really keeps the cake moist and the frosting is a classic cream-cheese frosting."

  1. very nice cake. Easy to make too.
  2. I had this at a teacher's appreciation day luncheon and it is very tasty and moist, with all of that cream cheese and pineapple-a good combination.
  3. Very easy to make, delicious cake. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe when I served it yesterday for dessert after our first barbecue of the season. Added this great recipe to my favorite zaar recipe binder to make again real soon.


I'm a grandmother who loves having the grandkids around. My son is currently living with me (on a short term basis) so I get to see and spend time with his kids more than I ever had, and that's a great thing. I love trying new recipes and since I have found RecipeZaar, the new dishes have been streaming. Sometimes I think the kids would prefer a little break, but until they speak up, it's something new for them about everytime they visit with us. I don't consider myself a 'cook,' I can only follow recipes. To me a cook is someone who can come up with their own recipes and have success at it (like my daughter).
