Pineapple Icebox Cake image

Here is a popular dessert in my family. It comes from Naparima Girls' High School cook book. The original calls for almonds which I found to be rather bland. I loved it with brazil nuts. I have also substituted walnuts as it's not everyday I come by brazil nuts. Use which ever are your favourite. The next time I make this I plan to use caramelized pecans.

Time P1DT20m

Yield 1 cake, 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

6 ounces butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
4 eggs (separated)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups pineapple slices (diced)
1 cup brazil nut (chopped)
1 sponge cake, already baked (I use a store bought, lemon sponge, box cake. I think the lemon gives a better flavour than a plain)
2 cups whipped cream


  • Cut the cake into one inch thick slices.
  • Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks one at a time, beating after each addition and scraping the sides.
  • Add vanilla, pineapple and brazil nuts.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff but moist and fold into mixture gently.
  • Place a layer of cake in a dish, then a layer of pineapple-butter mixture; continue to layer until all the cake and mixture are used up, ending with the pineapple mixture.
  • Cover with foil and freeze for 24 hours.
  • When ready to use take out and thaw for a 10 minutes. Garnish with whipped cream, a maraschino cherry and sprig of mint,or candied orange pieces -- whatever suits you.
  • Variation: drained peaches or ripe mangoes could be substituted for the pineapple. I have only ever made it with pineapple.

I'm not a big fan of pineapple, but I thought this icebox cake was pretty good. The graham crackers and whipped cream helped to balance out the sweetness of the pineapple.

The pineapple icebox cake was delicious! The only thing I would change is to use less sugar in the whipped cream.

This icebox cake was a bit too sweet for my taste, but it was still enjoyable.

I was skeptical about this recipe at first, but I'm so glad I tried it! The cake was so moist and flavorful, and the pineapple added a nice sweetness.
