Us Southern girls LOVE a pound cake more than almost anything. I got this recipe from a lady I attend church with and my ex was determined to get the recipe when we divorced. Let's just say that I think he's still looking for it as he discovered I was more of a favorite than he was because she wouldn't let him have it!

I was skeptical when I first saw this recipe because I have only ever made pineapple cake recipes with canned pineapple, but I was given a pineapple last night so I obviously wanted to use fresh. I whipped up this batter and nearly fainted when I tasted it because it was so good, but batters have fooled me before so I still wasn't sold. I just tasted a fresh hot bite right out of the oven, however, and I am ecstatic at how delicious it is! Wow! I made two loaf pans with this recipe. Thanks for this; it's a keeper and will be made again (maybe even tomorrow :-P)
