Something a little different - quick and easy to make as you use a white cake mix and vanilla frosting and then jazz them up.
I wanted to make something a little different so I thought I would try this and it turned out well, although I might try more of whipped topping instead of vanilla frosting next time. It was very moist and flavorful with the pineapple being the main flavor with just a hint of the lime, mint and rum flavors.
1 box white cake mix
3 eggs whites (or whatever your cake mix calls for)
1/3 cup vegetable oil (or whatever your cake mix calls for)
1 20 oz can crushed Pineapple
1 teaspoon artificial Mint flavoring
Non-Stick Coating Spray
1 can vanilla frosting
Zest of 1 lime (off of lime used in the cake)
1 teaspoon artificial rum flavoring
Preheat the oven to the degree specified on the cake mix (mine was 350 degrees). Separate the egg whites from the yolk.
Zest the lime (which is just running it over a grater) then cut the lime in half. Set aside the zest for the frosting.
Squeeze the juice of one lime into a large bowl, then put box of cake mix in , add in Pineapple, oil, eggs whites, and the mint flavoring.
Mix until well blended - will still look a bit lumpy but it is just the pineapple bits.
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with non-stick coating spray then pour the mix into the pan and bake according the the cake mix package (mine was 28-35 mins).
Bake until it springs up when touched in the center then remove and allow to cool before frosting the cake.
To make the frosting, put the canned frosting in a bowl, add the zest of lime and the artificial rum flavoring and mix thoroughly.
Frost the cake and then serve.
