I was at work the other day and I started thinking about cake recipes it’s not surprising I’m always thinking of either baking or cooking something. Will any ways the reason I was thinking about a pineapple cake recipes is because my co-worker were talking about pineapples that they bought at the flea market and I started thinking about my grandma’s pineapple cake with seven minute frosting, it was one of my favorites next to her chocolate marble cake. Oh wait a minute there is few more favorites her coconut cake and her red velvet cake. Now you know why I love to bake I love cake. And I think my grandma Annie Mae Whitley made the best cakes. This is not her pineapple cake recipe that recipe left this world when she passed away; she never wrote any of her recipes down she kept them all in her head. I wonder if my grandma was alive in this computer world of ours would she also have a cooking blog.
