I usually bake cakes from scratch only, but this recipe sounded good because I love pineapple and bananas. This cake was very easy to make and tasted good and was more delicious 2 days later. I think I will try it again using a scratch cake and drain the pineapple somewhat so the cake will be less soggy. All the people who tried it loved it, even my husband who insists I bake from scratch.
I made this about a month ago and forgot to review it! I was looking it up again for a friend and noticed. This cake is fabulous, even without bananas. My bananas were too ripe to slice so I left them out. I also left off the coconut since I made it for picky folks who did not like it. It's worth the tiny extra bit of effort involved for sure. Thanks for posting!
Made this for my husbands birthday, we all loved it!!!
