    breezermom's Note:

    This is one of those recipes that everyone seems to have a favorite recipe for! We always tend to have it at Easter, and my daughter likes to have it for her birthday cake quite often. Depending on where you live, the PH in fresh pineapple can cause the cake to fall, so I've listed canned pineapple as the ingredient instead.
