Elvis Presley Cake


Note: My Little Guy has a fascination with Elvis Presley. He has bought his CD's. Read books about him. I found this recipe over at Southern Plate and knew I had to try it for my guy. When I tell him what it is called he will be all shook up! (Sorry. I couldn't resist!)

Beat until smooth.Bake in greased 9x13-inch pan in 350F preheated oven for 45-60 minutes (or until center springs back).While cake is baking, boil pineapple and sugar on top of stove until sugar has melted. While cake is still hot, punch holes in cake and pour hot pineapple over cake. Let cool.

My 7 year old LOVES Elvis. I have no idea why, but he loves his music and has his cd's and has watched a movie or two as well. I will have to make this for him. Thanks.

Suzann, your 7 year old should meet my 7 year old. They would have a great time together. I don't know where Little Guy got his love of Elvis, but he adores him too.
