Yummy...thank you so much for sharing your excellent recipe, this recipe makes a soft, tender, moist cake, with a crunchy sweet, crumbling topping. My dh's eyes fell out of his head when he first saw this wonderful cake. This cake is even better the next day. The cake is a little firmer and the pineapple flavor is deeper. I omitted the pecans because of dhs allergies. Made for Whats on the Menu tag game.
I didn't have any coconut or pecans on hand, but I made it anyway. It was still really good, even without the extra toppings.
I've made this cake twice now. It is very moist and tastes wonderful. I find that it does take a bit longer (10 to 15 minutes) to cook in the center, but it is lovely and well worth your time.
