      I had to make some slight adjustments to this recipe but none that altered the flavor. I halved this recipe and used a half recipe of Homemade Yellow Cake and Variations for the cake, pineapple chunks instead of rings & baked 6 mini-cakes in 8 oz ramekins. Despite the strange combination, I totally loved this recipe! DH wasn't crazy about it, even though he loves garlic as much as I do, but I would definitely make this again. I may use minced garlic instead of the slices for him though. I arranged the pineapple wedges into circles that were very close to what a ring would have looked like. I tried this recipe out of sheer curiosity & I'm really glad I did. Sometimes it's a nice surprise to go out of our comfort zone! Thanks for sharing, Danny! :)

      Wonderful! I added a touch of fresh minced garlic sprinkled throughout but otherwise followed the directions exactly. Absolutely loved it - thanks for the recipe!

      This is a great, unusual, and easy to make cake. The roasted garlic adds a nutty, toasty flavor. For something that will really start a conversation, make this cake.
