Did You Know?...
There are just a few tricks to making a light and fluffy cake.
Cake recipes usually ask that you "cream together" the sugar and butter.
This just means mixing it well with a spoon (I use the back of the spoon to really grind the ingredients together).
The secret to a light cake recipe is to cream the sugar and butter together really well, until it is very well mixed and light and fluffy.
The mixing adds air to the batter and will ensure a light texture to the cake.
Make this pineapple cake any day of the week for a sweet treat everyone will love.
