My very skinny sister isn't one for desserts. Perhaps why she's so skinny. But seriously, ever since she was young she hasn't favored sweets, especially chocolate. So when we discover a tasty treat that she likes, believe me, I hold on to the recipe. (It's part of my secret plan to fatten her up to normal size!)
Her birthday cake of choice lately has been a Pineapple Lei cake. The recipe is from Sweet Serendipity, the cookbook from the folks at Serendipity 3 in NYC. I've made a number of the sweets from the book, but this one has stuck out as a favorite. Making it in a pie plate instead of a pan is my addition and it works well. We just serve it up like pie and it is so yummy. And all gone.
