I made this cake for a get together with friends and everyone said it was the best pound cake they had ever tasted. I served it with pineapple coconut ice cream.

OH MY OH MY! How good was this! I made it for an Open House yesterday and the guests loved it. Very moist, great texture and the pineapple is not overwhelming to the flavor. THANKS FOR SHARING!
