Summer "Do Nothing" Cake fits the pace of summer -- it's hot outside and we don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen. To suggest you have to do nothing to make this cake is, of course, hyperbole. But it's really simple to make, freeing up more time to pursue a breeze on the front porch or some similar worthy exploit. This is a Georgia recipe.
2 cups plain flour
2 eggs, beaten with a fork
1 large can crushed pineapple with juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir with a spoon. Pour the mixture into a 9x13x2 inch sheet pan. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the center is done. Serve warm and top with vanilla ice cream.
