  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, including juice
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2-3 bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Making the Cake:

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan to prevent the cake from sticking.

  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

  3. Add Wet Ingredients:Add the eggs, crushed pineapple with juice, mashed bananas, and vanilla extract to the dry mixture. Mix until the batter is silky smooth and all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

  4. Pour and Spread:

    Mix until the batter is silky smooth and all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

  5. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool completely in the pan.

Making the Frosting:

  1. Beat Butter and Cream Cheese: In a bowl of medium size, whisk the softened butter and cream cheese until they blend into a velvety, airy concoction.

  2. Add Powdered Sugar: Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  3. Blend in Vanilla: Incorporate the vanilla extract, blending until the frosting is smooth and creamy.

Assembling the Cake:

  1. Frost the Cake: Once the cake has completely cooled, spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the top.

  2. Add Pecans: If desired, sprinkle chopped pecans over the frosting for added texture and flavor.

  3. Serve: Cut the Elvis Presley Sheet Cake into squares and serve. Enjoy the perfect combination of banana, pineapple, and creamy frosting with every bite!
