Guest approved Pineapple Bars are a favorite at Brenham House Bed and Breakfast for dessert. It is the most requested recipe and for this reason I knew I had to add it to my blog. It is a cake but is so rich and I usually cut the size of a bar cookie to serve. For this reason I call them Pineapple Bars! This is a great go to recipe when you need something for a pot luck dinner or if you are having friends over for coffee and dessert. It is easy to make and there is never anything left to bring home.
1 3/4 c. sugar, 1 3/4 c. flour, 1 tsp. soda, 1 lg. can crushed pineapple, 2 eggs, beaten, 1 tsp. almond extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift the first three dry ingredients and place in a mixer. Add the pineapple, eggs, and almond extract and mix well in the mixer. Pour into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes.
Frosting: In a mixer combine 8 oz. of softened cream cheese, 2 T. softened butter, 16 oz. powdered sugar 1 c. chopped pecans, 1 tsp. vanilla.
Frost cooled cake in the pan and cut into bars and enjoy!
