Pineapple-Pecan Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Pineapple Pecan Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

What a great theme we have this month at the #BundtBakers table, making a mix of fruit and nuts has always been one thing I enjoy doing. The combinations are endless and you can make simple bundt cakes as other very elaborate.
I love this combination of pineapple and pecans, this kind of cake I have done on other occasions but this time decided to add grated coconut for a touch pina colada style.
It is very simple and delicious, definitely very different from any that have tried it before, I assure you that you will love it.
This particular recipe, enough to make two cakes, so if you wish you can prepare and give one or can also make cupcakes and place frostin.
Definitely the possibilities are endless. It is ideal for summer for its tropical flavors, and it is very hot, but you must prepare this cake.
If you want you can vary the ingredients and have different recipes for all seasons of the year.
The only thing you should consider is that only fruit and nuts must change, not the proportions of the cake.
I hope you enjoy it as much as us here at home.

Pineapple Pork #SundaySupper

Pineapple Pork #SundaySupperAs the summer comes closer and closer we want to share some tropical ideas so you can have lots of options to make in the summer for dinner, lunch, breakfast you name it.
Easy and delicious recipes like my Pineapple Pork a very simple way to incorporated some everyday recipes in a very peculiar way.
This is a dish inspired by one of my favorites Chinese Restaurants in Costa Rica, they make a dish very similar to this one and it was my favorite. The best part it was the amount of pineapple and sometimes coconut they use to put in the sauce.
Since we move here I try to find sometime similar but it was impossible, so I decided to make my own version and that is the history of how this delicious Pineapple Pork was born.
Like I said before is super easy to make, with a few ingredients, perfect over rice or pasta, and the best part you can make it in 20 minutes.
Hope you like.
Enjoy
