Old-Fashioned Cajun Cake – An EASY cake recipe filled with crushed pineapple and topped with a warm coconut pecan glaze.

When I show up at my mom’s, quite often she has a dessert baked.  I’ll admit that I get the best ideas from her.  One-Pot Cabbage Casserole is a reader favorite, and I owe that one to her.  Well, this Old-Fashioned Cajun Cake is no exception!  I went over there one day and got to sample this cake.  I immediately asked for the recipe, so I could share it with you guys.

Now I’ll be the first to admit that I was a little perplexed by the name Cajun Cake.  I mean it has pineapple and coconut.  Shouldn’t it be Hawaiian Cake??  I’m not exactly sure why or how it gots its name, but the name alone sparked my interest.

Maybe it’s the old-fashioned icing on there that makes it a Southern cake.  Because after all, this icing is so darn good!  You pour it on the warm cake and let it kind of soak in there a little.  It’ll make your soul happy.  Make sure your people have some milk to go with it too!  Because warm cake with cold milk is totally comfort food.
