Pineapple Layer Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by KLV2993

This is so easy and quick but it tastes fabulous. It's great to serve to guests during the summer as a dessert or special occasion cake. I've made it many times and received lots of compliments on it. Another treasure from my church cook book.
