Pineapple-Nut Pound Cake


I found this recipe on the box of cake mix years ago. It was one of those recipes that you are always finding on a slip of paper, or you find that coconut wrapper with a recipe on it? Come on, you do it too! This is really good! Something about coconut and pineapple! I used a yellow cake, but you could easily go with a white cake; you may have to use a little lemon extract.

Very good! I omitted nuts as I didn't have any but this cake was still very good. Nice and moist too. An excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing.
