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 made this one night after looking for something sweet to eat one night. I had everything in the house I needed for this one. It turned out so great my spouse has requested I make it numerous times. After all the time of making my favorite is to make a mixture of pineapple juice milk and egg for the liquid and use pineapple tidbits in stead of crush. I use the food processor for making the topping
This turned out perfect for me. I think the best tip is to really make sure you get all the juice drained which is a continuous thing. Much like spinach, it seems like it keeps creating juices. I had no problem with the topping. It turned out good, crunchy, the cake was cooked just right, not soggy. Let it cool 10-15 minutes. So key is getting rid of juices of crushed pineapple. Very good, would be nice with vanilla ice cream
Very easy to make and best served warm. I did have a problem, as others, with the topping; more doughy than crumbly. I would also bake it for about 10 minutes less and it was a tad over done. Still is tasty though.
My mom went wild when she saw I'd made this cake - it came out absolutely beautiful. Except the topping came out more like dough than crumbles... Maybe I shouldn't have mixed it with my hands? Anyhow, I just broke off a bunch of little pieces and put them on the cake and the top ended up nice and chewy-crispy.
Very good and easy to make. Used additional pineapple (3 cans for 2 cakes) and will try other fruits next time. Definitely a keeper.
Very good indeed. More than half gone within 12 hours. =p
Very good, however it was hard to spread the small ammount of batter into a 9x13 pan.
What a hit! I sent this cake off to work with my hubby, and he came home completely empty-handed! He said people were even going back for thirds! This was easy to make and smelled amazing when it came out of the oven. Thanks for posting this keeper!
This was SO good! I could not find a 15 oz can of pinepple, so I used a well drained 20 oz can. I think next time I will even add an additional 8 oz can! The topping reminded me a great deal of my Moms apple crisp topping so I decided to add about 1/2 t. cinnamon to the mix. My only tip is to read the recipe carefully. I must admit I glanced at it and saw 1/4 for the butter and thought 1/4 c., but thought that didn't seem like enough. 1/4 lb of butter is 1 stick of butter, so please be wary. This coffee cake is outstanding! Everyone I served it to raved! I have requests coming in for the recipe! I highly recommend this recipe, try it, you will not regret it.
