    Heavenly Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting:037:
    2 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 can (20 oz) unsweetened pineapple with juice, pureed
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 cup walnuts, finely ground
    1/2 lb cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup unsalted butter
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp orange peel, grated
    3 cups powdered sugar
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two 9 in. baking pans and set aside.

    Combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a deep mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on high speed until light in texture. Add pineapple and mix thoroughly.

    Add flour, baking soda, and ground walnuts and mix until combined. Do not overmix. Pour into prepared baking pans.

    Bake 30 minutes, or until tester comes out clean when inserted in center. Cool on wire racks 15 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before assembling layers with frosting.

    Make cream cheese frosting by combining next 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add powdered sugar and continue beating until smooth.

    Chill briefly to ease spreading. Assemble cake by centering one layer on a serving plate. Evenly spread 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture over top.

    Center remaining cake layer over top. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. 16 servings = about 365 calories.
