Pineapple Meringue Cake Recipe

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup shortening
4 egg yolks (well beaten)
4 tablespoons cold milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream together the granulated sugar, shortening, egg yolks and milk. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the first bowl. Pour the batter into two 8" diameter round lightly greased cake pans.

Step 2: Meringue Topping

4 egg whites
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir in the granulated sugar and vanilla extract and beat again. Spread meringue topping on both of the unbaked cake layers.

Bake cakes in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely.

Step 3: Pineapple Filling

2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large can crushed pineapple
plus juice from pineapples

In a saucepan, combine all of the above ingredients together and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and becomes smooth. Remove from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes and spread on one layer of cake. (this filling is to go between the 2 layers).

Refrigerate cake for 1 hour before serving in an airtight container.
