I have no idea why this is called a Cajun cake, but I do know that my family has been making it for years and you just about have to knock someone away from the pan to get a bite before it is all gone.

A wonderful dish if you like coconut and pecans. You can substitute any nut you prefer and you can change the consistency of the cake by adding more/less pineapple and juice. I prefer it moist and gooey. YUM!

This cake was just good, although it was a little too sweet.My son was not crazy about it.
