This cake is easier to make the the traditional recipe, but has that same delicious taste. I usually have all the ingredients on hand and can make this when the kids come over unexpectedly.

This recipe reminds me of one that my Grandma makes, she is always gets requests to take it to potlucks and to make it for family gatherings. This is VERY GOOD, very moist and great with a glass of milk. Thanks for posting this!

This cake was just okay for us. Not sweet at all! I think it would of been better with the pineapple stirred into the batter.
