Small Pineapple Oat Cake Recipe

Here are the ingredients that you need to compile in order to complete this recipe:

  •  3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  •  2/3 cup quick-cooking oatsuncooked
  •  3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  •  1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  •  1/2 cup sugar
  •  1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon orange extract (or vanilla extract)
  •  1/4 cup canola oil
  •  1 egg lightly beaten
  •  4 ounces cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese, softened
  •  1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  •  1/2 cup powdered sugar optional


Here are the instructions you need to follow to complete this recipe:

  1. First, you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  2. Next, you want to fully drain the pineapple juice from the can of crushed pineapple (if this amount does not give you 3/4 cup, add additional pineapple juice). Once you have enough juice you need to bring the pineapple juice to a boil in a small saucepan. This should take a few minutes. Set aside the crushed pineapple to use later.
  3. Now you need to remove the pan from heat completely. Once that is done you can fully stir in all of the oats to the pan. Now leave the mixture along and let it stand for 20 minutes.
  4. The next step is to combine all of the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking soda, orange extract, oil and egg in a large bowl. Make sure to stir it well. The mixture should combine together nicely.
  5. Now is the time to add in the oat mixture. Again, you want to mix everything together well so everything is incorporated evenly.
  6. Spoon the batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Let cool on a wire rack.
  9. Beat cream cheese at high speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  10. Add pineapple, and beat well.
  11. Taste and add the powdered sugar if you’d like the frosting sweeter.
  12. Spread over cooked cake, and cut into squares.
