Pineapple Icebox Cake

Pineapple Icebox Cake created by WizzyTheStick

Here is a popular dessert in my family. It comes from Naparima Girls' High School cook book. The original calls for almonds which I found to be rather bland. I loved it with brazil nuts. I have also substituted walnuts as it's not everyday I come by brazil nuts. Use which ever are your favourite. The next time I make this I plan to use caramelized pecans.

ingredients

  • 6 ounces butter
  • 1 12 cups icing sugar
  • 4 eggs (separated)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups pineapple slices (diced)
  • 1 cup brazil nut (chopped)
  • 1 sponge cake, already baked (I use a store bought, lemon sponge, box cake. I think the lemon gives a better flavour than a plain)
  • 2 cups whipped cream

directions

  • Cut the cake into one inch thick slices.
  • Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks one at a time, beating after each addition and scraping the sides.
  • Add vanilla, pineapple and brazil nuts.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff but moist and fold into mixture gently.
  • Place a layer of cake in a dish, then a layer of pineapple-butter mixture; continue to layer until all the cake and mixture are used up, ending with the pineapple mixture.
  • Cover with foil and freeze for 24 hours.
  • When ready to use take out and thaw for a 10 minutes. Garnish with whipped cream, a maraschino cherry and sprig of mint,or candied orange pieces -- whatever suits you.
  • Variation: drained peaches or ripe mangoes could be substituted for the pineapple. I have only ever made it with pineapple.
