Decadent and refreshing cake! This moist cake is incredible! The combination of pineapple and walnuts in the cake, paired with a coconut cream cheese frosting is perfect! My husband doesn't have a sweet tooth and even he goes crazy over this. It's called "Fat Cake" for a reason...sinful but oh, so good!
