~ A Bloom & Comfort Food ~

Hi friends~
I hope everyone had a great Memorial weekend~
Remember these? Look at that pretty gladiola...and to think I demoted this plant to the side yard a.k.a. the plant cemetary...lol. :)

This weekend I relaxed and enjoyed my family..... we also had some great food. Sometimes I just CRAVE comfort food......{ BLT'S anyone? }....YUM....





Then I found a recipe I wanted to try.....it was sooo good I thought I would share.





The title is somewhat 'iffy'....this is a family blog ya know....lol. But I'm a fool for pineapple.....




This cake was super easy to make....


This is what it looked liked after adding the warm pineapple & sugar mixture to the hot yellow cake...




then after adding the french vanilla pudding.... I chilled it in the refrigerator for about an hour~ I was somewhat leary of that part of the recipe....





Then I mixed the whipping cream and sugar.....( much better than cool whip )

and WHALA! Comfort food at it's finest....


Trust me when I tell you....this cake was WONDERFUL!

Don't worry, I saved some for ya'll~




The recipe calls for toasted coconut but we're not coconut fans....the recipe tells you how to toast it if you want to try it. :)

What about you? Any favorite comfort food?

Have a beautiful day!

Hugs~ J

This does look yummy. The recipe I have of the same name is chocolate though. My favorite comfort food is rolls. Whenever I have surgery I make sure to buy some so that when I have to take a pill with some food I can eat half a roll with it. I don't know about you but I usually have trouble eating after surgery but I can keep rolls down! I guess it's all the carbs that give me comfort, who knows! Your Genius has one more year before enlisting, right? My SIL has decided to rejoin the National Guard. Too many changes all around here right now. I can't take any more, LOL!
