This was a really yummy recipe. I made it exactly as indicated, except I increased the ingredients by about 25% to make sure it covered a 9x13 pan (left the baking power at 2 tsp). I took it to a MOPS Meeting and all the ladies raved about it. The pineapple made it really most. Next time I'm going to add blueberries. I think it will make it extra yummy and give it a little color.

I am a terrible baker since I always substitute ingredients to make it healthier. However this one worked! I'm dairy and soy-free unfortunately so sub'd butter for 1/4 cup mix of smart balance and coconut oil and another 1/4 cup mashed banana (same for topping). I used almond milk 1:1 and also sub'd half the sugar for a sugar substitute (stevia/cane sugar baking blend). For sugar in the topping I also did half cup stevia blend and 1/4 cup brown sugar, so only 3/4 cup total sugar, slightly reduced which was plenty sweet because the mashed banana sweetens everything up a bit. I also did 3/4 cup oats sub for 3/4 cup flour in the cake batter and half oats, half flour for topping. Like some others, the topping was very wet though probably because I used oats (old fashioned) which doesn't soak up the liquid as well. I then added more oats which helped some but just ended up dalloping little bits all over the top with plenty extra leftover. I used a 9x9baking pan and the size and thickness was perfect. It was moist and definitely sweet enough with a soft yet nicely crunchy top. As one reviewer suggested I threw some blueberries in the batter that I had leftover (maybe 1/4 cup). I realize I really deviated from the recipe but anyone looking for acceptable substations hopefully finds this helpful!

Wonderfully moist and very moreish. Next time I'll cut back on the butter for a crumble topping to make it a bit crumble-like.
