Coconut Pineapple Cake

Recipe by Lainey39

This is a very moist and dense cake. I made this for a recent picnic. It is best when chilled and cut ahead of time to serve as bars. Recipe is from Taste of Home.

Is yumalicious a word? Just as described: a really moist, dense cake. Very good. Minor changes I made were to add a splash of spiced rum and a little coconut to the cake batter. I also added a splash of lemon juice to the icing, and toasted the coconut that I used to top the cake. I made this in two round pans rather than one large one and made a layer cake with some of the icing in the middle. Husband can't contribute much to the review... as he's too busy eating and making "mmmm" sounds.
