Feed a Crowd

Not only is it a crowd-pleaser at potlucks and parties, but it’s also simple to make with pantry staples.

To make it even easier, you can use a box mix for the cake base and canned crushed pineapple.

In this recipe, we will be using canned crushed pineapple – but we’re not using a cake mix.

Give this dessert a try, and you’ll soon see why pineapple sheet cake is a beloved favorite across generations.

I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!

This recipe specifically calls for a 10×15 jelly roll sheet pan. You could make it on a standard half-sheet pan, it will just not be as thick of a cake as it will spread out a little further to fill that slightly larger pan.
