Preacher Cake

Friday, September 16, 2011

Just wanted to share a delicious recipe found online at
called the Preacher Cake.
Very good --- perfect for a cool, fall night!

Preacher Cake
-1 1/2 to 2 cps sugar (may cut to 1 1/4 cps...I did)
-2 cps all-purpose flour
-2 eggs
-2 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 tsp vanilla
-1/2 cup nuts
-1 (20 oz) crushed pineapple (undrained)

-1 (8 oz) softened cream cheese
-1 3/4 cps powdered sugar
-1/4 cup butter
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup nuts
-2 tsp vanilla

1. CAKE: Combine dry ingredients; add remaining ingredients, and mix by hand. Bake in a 9x13 prepared pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. (I cooked mine for 25 minutes, any longer and it would have been too done!)

2. FROSTING: Mix well and spread on the cake in pan. Enjoy!

3. If you would like to save calories, instead of using the frosting, just sprinkle top of cake with a bit of powdered sugar.


Baking a Fresh Apple Walnut Cake and Chocolate Cream Pie this afternoon,
for Sunday Dinner Company after church tomorrow.
I'll share those recipes soon!

And as much as I love to bake, does everything always come out just right???
The Nutella Brownies, below, attest to that.
I was making them for a Care Package to send to Ashley,
but unfortunately, they are JUST as HARD and dry as they appear in the picture.
...not sure what went wrong...
Sadly, they ended up in the trash!


  1. The Preacher Cake looks delicious. I can't imagine not using the cream cheese frosting...the heck with saving calories!

  2. Yummy! I have never heard of a preacher cake! Hope you are having a great week!...hugs...Debbie

  3. Rhonda, thanks for stopping by my site this morning and posting such lovely comments. I truly appreciate it!! This recipe looks yummy! I'll have to try it sometime. Have a great day!

  4. Hi Rhonda, I haven't heard of this cake in years, it looks so delicious, I'm ready to do some baking since our temps have been more fall like. I'm glad you're enjoying the tour. hugs ~lynne~

  5. Love your re-purposed fall vignette and this preacher cake looks delish...thanks for sharing.

  6. I'm with everyone else, with the temps lowering, I feel more like baking. And thanks so much for sharing that your Nutella brownies didn't turn out. Too often I feel like I'm kitchen-impaired when I read blogs. I like when people 'keep it real' :D

    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. My goodness, those look absolutely delicious! I'm going to have to try them, for sure! And, thank you so much for your sweet visit and kind note about my Fall sitting room!
