{Giveaway} Double In Season Pass to The Help & Pineapple Cake

This pineapple cake was inspired by the latest Disney flick The Help. I was intriduged by the buttery milky syrup that coats the cake whilst it is still warm. I thought I was reading the recipe wrong when it didn’t include butter in the cake, but only on the outside of the cake.

Still, it was an alright cake, and the glaze helped keep the cake well for quite a few days. Although I’m not sure I’d make it again, perhaps it just tasted too much of tinned pineapple!

Ah well, interesting recipes aside, how would you like to see the movie The Help, and see the delicious pecan pies, and other delicious treats? I’m off to see it this weekend with a girlfriend, can’t wait!

For your chance to win a double in season pass to The Help, leave a comment below telling me about your favourite American dish, and resident competition drawer sackboy or one of his friends will draw a winner at random.

Competition closes Friday 23rd September and winner drawn on Saturday 24th September.

Winner will be notified by email and announced on Iron Chef Shellie.

Australian readers only, enter as many times as you like. Tickets valid at participating cinemas and not valid Saturdays after 5pm.

    Loved the film, now have to read the book, let alone bake the cake! (And yes, my husbands name is Hamish!!)

  2. Tenina - September 19, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Woops, my Fave American food is Tex Mex anything…does that count? I love fresh Mexican food with the American tweaks that you get in Texas. Otherwise, you could just put me down for hot and sticky ribs any ole day!

  3. Lianne - September 19, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Mac and Cheese!! (: Not sure if it’s really american dish but it’s me favourite!

  4. sally li - September 19, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    i love waffles. the ones in max brenners are way to dry but there are some out there which is nicer

  5. Sharon - September 19, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    I love pineapple, so I’ll definitely be making this recipe! Favourite American recipe… Anything dreamed up by The Pioneer Woman. My never fail always run to recipe of hers is her Texas Sheet Cake. It’s seriously to die for.

  6. Katie - September 19, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    I am part way through the book (the audiobook that is) and loving it! It’s great!

    As far as american food goes I would say corn bread. I had some when I went in Year 11 and I still remember it to be one of the tastiest things I had there.

    Mmmmmm….

  7. Miss Adriennely - September 19, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    My favourite American dish would be the Pumpkin pie dessert! You just can’t get anything quite like that here down under :(

  8. Samantha - September 19, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    Nothing can beat a classic New York bagel with cream cheese so thick that it oozes through the middle when you take a bite!

  9. leaf (the indolent cook) - September 19, 2011 at 10:26 pm

    Sounds like a feel-good movie! I love apple pie. That’s totally American, right?

  10. Hannah - September 19, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Yes yes yes! I’m in! But that’s such a difficult question… right now, I’ll say peanut butter cheesecake 😀

  11. Winston - September 20, 2011 at 1:17 am

    greasy fatty texan/southern food appeals to me most! so… buttermilk fried chicken or buffalo wings for me! =]

  12. Winston - September 20, 2011 at 1:29 am

    for some reason all the greasy fatty texan/southern food really appeals to me… so, buffalo wings or buttermilk fried chicken def my fav! =D

  13. FOOD - Pampering Yourself - September 20, 2011 at 4:51 am

    The cakes look so soft and fluffy! And no butter – definitely earn it more credits!

    Favourite American dish – the old-fashioned Macaroni and cheese! Simple but delicious. Tubes of pasta in rich and creamy cheese sauce, topped with Cheddar cheese and baked in oven till bubbling!

  14. pamela - September 20, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Hot dogs from a street vendor in times square. Smeared in mustard!

  15. Jackie - September 20, 2011 at 8:57 am

    Key lime pie!! So tart and fruity and sweet. And pastry! How could you ever resist?

  16. Michelle chin - September 20, 2011 at 9:13 am

    i love red velvet cheese cake although I had it only once in my life. The red can be quite off putting but if you just get the right type, it’s heaven in your mouth!

  17. Vee @ Munching (in) Melbourne - September 20, 2011 at 9:13 am

    Southern fried chicken and peanut butter cup cupcakes 😉 That cake looks looooveeely! But I’m not a fan of tinned pineapple either unfortunately!!

  18. Ani @GloriousFood - September 20, 2011 at 10:24 am

    How can you go past a New York hotdog? I still dream about these! The soft buns, the sausage, the swirls of ketchup and american mustard.

  19. Nic@diningwithastud - September 20, 2011 at 11:44 am

    It does look good – a great sweet fix it sounds like

  20. Bec - September 20, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Has to be the Pioneer Woman’s A-MAZ-ING meatloaf recipe. It is seriously to. die. for. Yum! Might make it for dinner tonight in fact.

  21. sonya - September 20, 2011 at 7:18 pm

  24. Clarissa - September 21, 2011 at 11:40 am

    I love all American food, the greasier, the better! My absolute favourite would be mac n cheese… not to mention DEEP FRIED mac n cheese!
