Moist Pineapple Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

Always my grandfather's choice for his birthday cake. Very moist, easy and iced while hot, so a good cake to make when time is short. You can also place the iced cake under the broiler and lightly brown but watch carefully, it burns easily!

Sorry, but this just didn't do it for me. I followed directions closely and the result was just edible. The directions don't mention the baking soda that is in the ingredient list so I added it with the dry ingredients; perhaps it might be better with baking powder?
