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!

This cake didn't have the consistency of a pound cake in my opinion, and it lacked that good buttery flavor and moisture that I expect from pound cakes. I also felt like it needed more pineapple flavor. I didn't taste the 3/4 cup of crushed pineapple at all. It was very faint. Perhaps a topping would've helped, like the topping shown in the photo, but there isn't any direction or recipe for the glaze. To me, the cake was okay, but it wasn't anything I would ever take the time to make again (especially if I'm craving pineapple).

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)

The recipe is missing salt and uses too little fat. There is little to no pineapple flavor. Adding 1/2 tsp of salt, a full cup of melted butter with the shortening and a tsp of pineapple extract would make a lot of difference.
