Ingredients

  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup tightly packed shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • Drain pineapple, reserving 1/3 cup juice (save remaining juice for another use). Place the pineapple and reserved juice in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, vanilla, pineapple mixture; beat into the dry ingredients until blended. Fold in the zucchini, cranberries and nuts.
  • Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 2 cakes (8 wedges each).
