What a fun and creative recipe!
Can you turn the cake out onto a plate or do you have to eat it in the can?
Hi Catrina, I don’t think you can turn the cake out. The can has a lip inside. But serving it in the can is what makes this recipe fun!
I’ve made Soup Can Cakes before using yellow cake from scratch. It’s fun! How many pineapple can cakes does this recipe make?
Hi Susan, the recipe fills 10 cans
Thank you! I just re-read the recipe and saw the answer to my question. I can’t wait to make them! And I see you use the short cans that held 4 pineapple rings.
Hi Susan, Yes…I did.
Thank you for your help! This recipe is fun to make and fun to eat! The little cakes are so full of pineapple flavor. We loved them!
