My husband, who I affectionately call Meathead, came up with this recipe. I bake this cake for him and his lunch pals, as well as for our neighbors who don't cook/bake much anymore. They all seem to really like it!

  2. Roughly chop the remaining pineapple slices.
  3. Combine cake mix, extract, eggs and vegetable oil with mixer, until all cake mix is somewhat moist. Fold in, by hand, the pie filling, chopped pineapple and pecans.

  5. Let cool slightly in pan then invert cake onto a platter.
