I had some canned crushed pineapple to use and tried this recipe, brought it to my MIL and some to my mom's for 4th of July and got so many compliments. I made it almost as directed except I added about 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and almond flavoring to the batter and frosted it with a rum glaze (1 cup powdered sugar, 2T melted butter, 2T lemon juice and 1T rum). I poured the glaze over the cake while still warm but not hot. Thank you for the delicious recipe. Oh, maybe next time I think I will add a little coconut flakes to the batter too, yummy!
I must have done something really wrong... twice, that is why I am not rating this recipe. The only changes I made: I added 1 tea. coconut extract along with the 1 tea. vanilla, I added the 1/4 c. flaked coconut (as someone else had suggested and I made them as cupcakes. The texture was gross and spongy. I cannot figure out what went wrong, both times. Once I added the coconut, the other time I did not. really want to have a Pineapple Cupcake recipe... I love pineapple!! Thx.
A very easy recipe!! Good flavor and moist. I added 1/2 t. of cinnamon and 1/4 c. flaked coconut to the batter. I did grease/flour the pan before baking, just to be safe. Thanks for a great recipe.
I served it as Mexican Wedding Cake as naming ingredients isn't always a good idea with my family. Everyone loved it and it tastes even better the next day, if you can keep it hidden. So easy to make too. Thank you chef FIFI
Made this cake for a recent birthday party. I used a whipped cream frosting on it (Whipped Cream Frosting). Everyone was raving about it and asked for helpings to take home with them.
This cake was WONDERFUL! I've been on a pinapple binge, and this really was perfect. I made half the cake recipe, but because I wanted a rather thick layer of frosting, I kept it the same. I also put half a cup of coconut in the frosting and then sprinkled the cake with more coconut. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. All these changes I would definitely do again, I think they added to the cake. Thank you for a delicious recipe!
Wonderful cake with an out of this world delicous frosting! The cake was super easy to prepare and I'm so glad I tried it again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
very easy to make. Everybody LOVED it.
