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!

This is a very simple recipe and delicious tasting cake! I did add some of the leftover pineapple juice over the cake (after baking time) for more moisture. It did the job! Very tasty! Try it.

Very good. Not too sweet which I like. I think I would like it more with a little extra pineapple. The brown sugar on top is yummy.
