My family loves pineapple and pound cakes so I decided to combine the two and make one delicious Pineapple Delight Pound Cake.   I make this on the holidays because after cooking all day, I like to have a dessert that doesn't require a lot of time or a lot of ingredients.   Being that I start out with a Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake  this dessert comes together quite quickly, and can even be made ahead of time and put in the fridge until after dinner.  




Whenever I'm at Walmart I just stop by the freezer section and pick up a Sara Lee®  pound cake; it thaws out quickly so once I get home I can get to work.  Take a look at how simple this recipe is!
