Lemon Cake with Pineapple Filling

Lemon cake with pineapple filling is light, flavorful and the perfect after dinner or party treat.

 

Pineapple and lemon are a match made in heaven. The flavor combination of this lemon cake with pineapple filling is delicious. It makes a great summer dessert too since it’s so light. This is one my whole family loves and it was gobbled up so quickly there was barely any leftover for the next day. I love when that happens though because I know the recipe is a success.

The process to make this cake is pretty simple. I lightened it up quite a bit so it would be lower in calories. For the cake I used a lemon cake mix, Greek yogurt and water. These three ingredients make a super moist cake. I divided the batter and baked in two round cake pans.

The frostings made of lite whipped topping, instant pudding mix and some vanilla extract. Lemon flavored pudding mix would be great, but vanilla is also good. It depends how strong you want the lemon flavor to be.

 

For the pineapple filling, I used canned crushed pineapple then mixed in a bit of the whipped topping frosting. Just enough to give the mixture a slightly spreadable consistency. I put the filling between two stacked cakes, then frosted it. Easy and delicious.

Ingredients

For Cake

  • 1 15.25 oz box lemon cake mix
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water

For Filling

  • 1 cup crush pineapple, drained I used canned crushed pineapple in pineapple juice

For Frosting

  • 1 8 oz tub lite whipped topping
  • 1 oz box of sugar free instant pudding vanilla or lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp skim milk

Instructions

For Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 2 - 9" round cake pans with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, Greek yogurt and water. Mix for about 1 minute or until well blended. Divide in half, and pour mixture into prepared baking pans.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Check with toothpick in center to see if done. After 5 minutes, flip cakes over onto wire racks. Let cool.

For Frosting

  • In medium bowl, combine whipped topping, pudding mix, vanilla and milk. Mix well.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup frosting. Set frosting aside.

For Filling

  • Once crushed pineapple is drained well, add in the reserved 1/4 cup of frosting. Mix together well.
  • Place one cake round on a plate. Top evenly with pineapple mixture. Place other cake round on top forming a sandwich.
  • Frost cake with remaining frosting until all cake is covered.

Notes

  • Place crushed pineapple in strainer until juices strain out, about 15 minutes. You will want as much of the pineapple juice to run out as possible so pineapple mixture is not soggy.
