The double-layer delicacy called the Ooey Gooey Pineapple Butter Cake is one part butter cake topped with a second layer of ooey-gooey pineapple goodness.
I will be the first to say if any dessert has “ooey” and “gooey” in the name — sign me up!
Some people may be more familiar with Chess Cake, which like its gooey counterpart includes two layers – the first, a basic yellow or butter cake, and the second, the ooey-gooey part. This cake is said to have been created by mistake so I guess their loss is our gain!
Today I bring you my version of the double-layer delicacy called the Ooey Gooey Pineapple Cake. I remember the first time I had a taste of this great dessert and I have been hooked ever since.
The cake is denser on the bottom half and it just gets better with the added flavors from the pineapple juice and butter. Made with cream cheese, Creme Fraiche, powered sugar, more fresh pineapple juice, and of course more butter, the top layer adds a little something special.
This cake may be on the rich side, but every taste you bite into makes the time spent making this well worth it. When you want to impress family and friends at the next gathering give this Ooey Gooey Pineapple Cake a try and enjoy the moment.
