Tips

Pineapple Snack Cakes are great as a side dish to any meal or as a snack.

Use pineapple tidbits or chunks instead of crushed pineapple. Drain well and finely chop.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of coconut or walnuts on top of each snack cake before baking.

Save extra pineapple juice to add to a salad dressing, fruit salad, or smoothie.
