Apple & Pineapple Cake Tart

Apple and Pineapple Cake ~ Delicious, gooey Winter dessert #WinterDessert #AppleDessert #AppleRecipe

Tonight's dessert - Apple and Pineapple on a cake layer with a cream sauce poured over the hot dessert and back into the oven for another 5 - 8 minutes .. not a cake and not a tart, BOTH.

Another first for me {baking my own} .. I love Apple Tart, usually a little warm with ordinary cream, not whipped and I always had store-bought!

Must say, this was much better. The more I get into baking my own goodies, the less I want to pay a fortune for, well .. second or third rate goods from stores. Homemade is really much tastier, no denying that.

The cake kind of pushed up and over to the inside at the sides, but the cake layer was still at the bottom as well. I won't say this is a pretty dessert - but who cares, it was delicious!

1/2 cup Sugar
2 Extra-Large Eggs, beaten
