Light and fresh, this recipe for Creamy Pineapple Cake makes a great dessert during the warm spring and summer months. Featuring a thin layer of cake on the bottom, this cake crust is then topped with a whipped cream cheese layer with pineapple pieces suspended throughout.

This is a moist and creamy dessert! We liked the contrast of the pineapple chunks with the pistachios. My father-in-law gave me many compliments on the presentation of this cake and that means a lot!
