Recipe by Theresa Thunderbird

I have been making this for a while now and it is really good!The topping has a nice pecan flavor.Sometimes I add about 1/4 cup more pineapple.

Oh my, this was delicious! I thought I had made a mistake in the recipe as the pecan/coconut topping was very soupy when I poured it over the hot cake. When I served the cake after it cooled, the topping had seemed to "set". This made a fabulous dessert that we all highly enjoyed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
