Made this for my dh with fresh pineapple. It was wonderful, he couldn't stop raving about the flavor. He absolutely loved it and asked to have it again. The cake was light and fluffy while the pineapple and cherry were the icing on the cake. High praise indeed. Thank you for sharing your recipe, that made me look like a star. It was quick and easy to throw together, served with a little ice cream for a perfect ending to the meal.
