ME! So how will I celebrate? I made me a birthday cake YESTERDAY, and the party started.
OOPS! Looks like a piece is missing! I had cake with my afternoon coffee, and cake for dessert after supper last night. So I think I will have cake with coffee again today for breakfast… It’s my BIRTHDAY, I can do what I want to!!
My MOST FAVORITE EVER cake is a pineapple-coconut. Since I was very young I always asked for one of these for my birthday, and there is nothing easier to make.
Just bake a butter recipe yellow cake mix as directed (I prefer Pillsbury) in a 9 x 13” pan, then frost with this….
1 large can of crushed pineapple
1 cup sugar (I used Splenda)
1/4 cup flour
Mix these ingredients well in a saucepan; cook on med. heat, stirring constantly until thick. Add 1 cup shredded coconut (I use a little more… I love coconut) and stir well. Ice cake and let set for a few minutes.
SOOOOO… I’m making my wish list (more pieces to go with my Staxx Ring, which I will purchase when I go to town), and making big plans for Friday. I need to work today, but my sister and Mom are taking me out to lunch on Friday, then DH is taking me out for seafood buffet on Friday night. I may forget where the kitchen is located in this house!
Birthdays are wonderful because I get pineapple coconut cake. I only cook this for my birthday because… I EAT IT ALL UP! I figure once a year, I am allowed.
Have a really blessed day… I know I will, too.
