Extra-moist and studded with nuts and dried cranberries, this low Fodmap pineapple cake is delicious. Be careful not have more than a small slice at a time. If you’re making it for a special occasion, you could cover it with a frosting made from powdered sugar, butter, and water. If fructose is a trigger for you, you’ll have to reduce the size of your slice.
