If you are craving for something tropical tasting, this pineapple cake filling will do you good. The pineapple adds a bit of tartness to the creamy custard base.

Pineapple Cake Filling

You can use either fresh or canned pineapples. When using fresh pineapples, make sure that it is heated through or else the custard will break down and become watery. Canned crushed pineapples makes the whole process easy. Drain the juice and set it aside for the custard.

It is great paired with chiffon cake, yellow cake or lemon cake. For the ultimate tropical flavor, use coconut cake punched with some rhum syrup. Ummm...It's like eating a pina colada. Use it also as topping for ice cream or eat it as is (like I do...shhh).

Make an easy dessert by making a trifle. Cut up pieces of store bought sponge cake. Alternate layers of sponge cake and the pineapple filling. Top with whipped cream. Yum.
