Great recipe, Geema! Since my can of pineapple was 16 ounces, I decided to double this. I baked it in a 9" x 13" pan for about 40 minutes! The end result was a delicious cake which wasn't overly sweet.. just the way we like it! The pineapple and brown sugar topping is wonderful! Thanks for sharing this!
