Pretty Pineapple Pound Cake Is A Gorgeous Addition To Your holiday Dessert Lineup

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this pineapple pound cake was to make. The longest part is the baking and waiting for that luscious cake to come out of the oven! You know what I’m talking about…the aroma of a fresh pineapple pound cake baking. It wafts through your home and finds its way to your nostrils and basically taunts you with its deliciousness. Oh boy oh boy!

This pineapple pound cake definitely does make one heck of a breakfast! Super sweet, moist, and flavorful just the way my family and I like it 🙂
