  4. Hi Mary! I just made your pineapple cake filling. Wow is it good! Cake filling just doesn't get any better than this! The recipe made 1 and 1/2 cups for me using half of a 20 oz can of pineapple. (My eggs might have been a little bigger...) Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe. I look forward to coming back and trying more of your recipes.

  6. I am slightly allergic to eggs. Can I leave them out?

    1. You can! You'll lose some of the richness that you'd get from the egg yolks though and you'd have to use a binder like cornstarch for thickening since the eggs act as a thickening agent also. Just not sure how much. I'd start with about 1-1/2 tablespoons and increase from there if needed.

  7. Oh my goodness this is the best I used to use a store brought filling from my cake supply store,at 2am ran out and frantically searched the web, came across yoir recipe. And will never ever use commercial filling again! Gotta admit I was a little skeptic initially when I reviewed the ingredients but since it was all available in my pantry and the reviews were positive I figured what would it hurt to give it a try!!! I'm forever greatful and my cake was a hit! Thanks for sharing

    1. It will be great Ashley, so long as the almond is not overpowering and strong, the flavors should compliment each other. Mama used this filling on many an almond wedding cake too, but they are lightly flavored with almond extract.
