Delicious easy to make pineapple cake. Added a splash of vanilla extract to the cake batter, and used butter instead of margarine in the topping. Used walnuts and toasted them as follows: Place chopped walnuts evenly in a dry stainless steel skillet; cook over low to medium heat, stirring or shaking the pan frequently to prevent burning; remove from the pan when the walnuts begin to release a nutty aroma, about 4 minutes. This cake would also be good with cream cheese frosting or a Cool Whip, vanilla pudding, and crushed pineapple topping. Added to my favorites binder. Yum. Made for Please Review My Recipe game.
