I got this recipe from a co-worker many years ago. It sounds like a lot of steps, but it's very easy to make. The pineapple really keeps the cake moist and the frosting is a classic cream-cheese frosting.

I had this at a teacher's appreciation day luncheon and it is very tasty and moist, with all of that cream cheese and pineapple-a good combination.

Very easy to make, delicious cake. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe when I served it yesterday for dessert after our first barbecue of the season. Added this great recipe to my favorite zaar recipe binder to make again real soon.
