I need to find a cheesecake recipe that has a pineapple layer between the cheesecake filling and the graham cracker crumb bottom.

I found this in a search for pineapple cheesecake, which sounds like what you were originally asking about a cheesecake with a layer of pineapple b/t the cream cheese and the crust. Hope this helps.

Pineapple Cheesecake Recipe
Mix 1 cup sugar with 2 cans crushed pineapple in heavy syrup in a pot. Heat with 3 tablespoons cornstarch. Bring to a boil, stirring until thickened. Turn off and remove from heat while mixing cream cheese mixture.

Mix 2-8oz bars cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons salt. Mix in 4 eggs and stir well. Add 1 cup milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Spread pineapple mixture into a pie shell lined 13X9 pan. Pour cream cheese mixture on top of that. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Bake in preheated oven at 400°F for 10 minutes, then turn down to 325 degrees for 50 minutes more.

Years ago, I had written and made many times a recipe for a "Pineapple Cheesecake", the recipe came from a bag of Gold Medal Flour. The base of the cake was actually a cake batter made from scratch with the chunks of pineapples placed into the batter, it used cream cheese with some of the pineapple juice.

If anyone has this recipe, I would greatly appreciate a copy of it, I have moved several times over the years and in the moves lost this really tasty cheesecake.

Hope someone out there can help.

Thanks so much,

I have a similar recipe. We call it Sunshine Cake (I hope it is comparable to is quite yummy!) Here is our recipe:

Sunshine Cake


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 medium can mandarin oranges (do not drain)
    Mix ingredients and bake in a greased/floured 9x13 pan at 325 for 45 minutes. Allow cake to completely cool before applying topping.


  • 1 (20oz) can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 (10 oz) package of cheesecake mix (do not use the graham cracker crust part - I've always used the Royal brand)

  • 1 (8oz) container of sour cream
  • Mix and spread on completely cooled cake. Cover and keep refrigerated until ready to serve and return to refrigerator upon serving. (03/26/2007)

    Thank you tismom for the Pineapple cheesecake recipe, it is not exactly the same, actually, it sounds like it is a "Better Version" of the one I was in search of. I will definitely try your recipe and again, thanks so much for the recipe, I can't wait to make it. It sounds so delicious.
    Take good care.

    You're welcome, Nancylee. I have always been a collector of recipes and recipe books... well, not always, but since I first got married 26 years ago, because I was always calling my mom for advice on cooking. I had never made complete meals before due to lack of interest. So, my mom starting buying recipe books for me, and even gave me some of her old ones. That's when I started adding to them through the years, and love browsing through them for ideas.
    Enjoy! (04/03/2007)

It is always nice to bring a dessert or some sort of a dish to say "Thank You."
    Thanks again everyone for your recipes.
    Take good care,
