Easter’s on its way, and being an Elvis Wedding Chapel and all, we thought we’d share this super easy Elvis Presley cake recipe that we came across on the Internet. It’s said that this is his grandmother’s recipe and Elvis’s favorite. We’re planning to bake one up for Easter and see why it was “The King’s” favorite!
We’re also thinking of tinting the coconut in pastels…and maybe adding a jelly bean or two for decoration!
ELVIS PRESLEY CAKE
1 box yellow cake mix
1⁄3 cup oil
1 1⁄3 cups water
1 box powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
1 (14 oz.) can crushed pineapple in syrup
12 ounces of semi-sweet shredded coconut
Follow package directions to prepare yellow cake mix and add batter to a 9 x 12 pan.
While the cake is baking, put pineapple and syrup in a small sauce pan.
Add granulated sugar to the pineapple. Cook over medium heat but do not brown pineapple.
In another small saucepan, heat the cream cheese and 1/2 box of powdered sugar.
Add more powdered sugar as needed to make icing.
Remove cake from oven and punch holes all over with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Pour the hot pineapple mix over the top of the cake and allow to absorb.
Drizzle the icing mix over the cake.
Top with chopped pecans and coconut.
