Fabulous buttery goodness!! Delicious....10 star recipe!! Thank you for posting! I sub butter for margarine...and pineapple juice for milk.
The best recipies I have found for PUC. I did substitute pineapple juice for half of the milk then added a little more juice and also used 1/2 tsp almond extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. The cake was flavorful and moist and the topping was perfectly sweet. It got rave reviews from dinner guests and husband. This one is added to my cookbook, thanks for posting.
Very tasty cake! I made two--one dairy-free, with Fleischman's unsalted margarine, and one with butter. For both, I used pineapple juice instead of milk. Both cakes were VERY moist. The DF cake, I made in a 9x9 square pan. The butter one, I made in a 9" round, but all the batter would not fit.
