A recipe I got from my mother. Remember not to drain the pineapple before adding. If you like, add coconut to the frosting.

An easy to make cake that is good tasting, too. It does remind me of a carrot cake as someone else said.I used macademia nuts (all I had). I also omitted the vanilla and used about 1T. lime juice and then more 10X sugar for the frosting as another suggested. Next time I will bake it for less time since it feels a bit overdone (probably my older oven) I also think it tastes better cold. Looking forward to making this again, perhaps with cashews. Oh, and I used crushed pineapple with its own juice. There are so many selections now for canned fruits (heavy syrup, etc.), but I bet all are yummy in this great recipe!
